What if female Kryptonians can absorb yellow sunlight better than males? Or they could have better muscle acceleration. Muscle mass doesn't directly translate to power.
Besides, you're only referring to physical power. Maybe female Kryptonians have stronger heat vision or faster flight. You can't really apply human anatomy to aliens. :P
