Women compete in plenty of the same sports as men - but I can think of very few where they can compete against men one-one one other than motorsport (I shudder to think how a women's rugby team would fare against an all male side, although the showers/baths after could be interesting!). So many sports have female variants - cycling, cricket, football, and rugby come to mind - but they are different, neither better nor worse. Motorsport is unique, I believe, in giving female competitors an equal chance. Whether a driver is good enough, or not, to progress to F1 should depend solely on their skill, not their sex, or "marketability". It might be interesting, in the end-of-season tests for up and coming drivers to include one or more female drivers, just to see how they compare.
