Something like uneven bars, I would expect women to do better than men, mainly because it rewards "flexibility" more than strength.

This whole debate may end up coming down to replacing "men's" and "women's" events with a split based on testosterone levels, similar to how combat sports are broken up by weight classes. The problem, of course, is that pretty much every woman that wants to be an athlete would have to be tested, whereas very few men would be, and I can hear the claims of sexual discrimination already.
