Speaking as a male healer, I'd suspect it has something to do with the psychological aspect of healing. You have very little control over the flow of the fight; your domain is the life of others. It's very much a supporting role - keeping the group alive so they can kill the boss. Most men have difficulty in relinquishing the other aspects of the fight in order to correctly focus on healing, so I'd suggest it's not that more women are healers, but that less men are healers. If a majority of men find healing stressful and unsettling, it only stands to reason that women would represent a majority of the healing population.Of course, this is merely my conjecture, so perhaps some day Blizzard will release a statistical plot showing distribution of gender by primary role (or by time played in group settings) across the population.
