    Historically this was because their parents made them that way. Boys were taught to go out and appeal professionally to other men so they could get a good job, and that was usually just a matter of their education and skill sets. Girls were taught to appeal to men in the hopes of attracting a "suitable" marriage. Because physical attraction is more subjective than professional competency this created a legacy of not really knowing what to do. But there are plenty of professionally competent men out there right now who still feel insecure in their dating lives. You can find them all over forums like this very one.

    Backwards society and pressure on women to get married and have kids

    It couldn't be because of thousands of years of discrimination and laws labeling them as property, and denying them any rights.  It also couldn't be that whenever they say or do something men don't like they're mocked demonized.

    They aren’t by a huge amount however they’re more emotional, resulting in an unstable self image, inside and out. Though this is changing as there’s just as much emphasis on males to be physically attractive these days as a rich, ugly guy won’t cut it. Nonetheless, men often know who they are and what they want more than women so are more secure in that sense. 

    Males are often just as “insecure” though but about different things. The need to assert their dominance, fragile egos resulting in competitiveness being disguised as “envy“. That’s why you see so many guys with a need to bully and outperform other men at any given task.
