Yes there was a time when those weighing and checking the coins, and planchets, were women. But you are talking about the US Mint, and during a specific period of time. During other periods of time the work was done by men as well. And in earlier history, before the US Mint even existed, such work was always done by men.
It is also important to note that weight adjustments were done both before the coins were struck and after the coins were struck.
