That is the language of a male dominated societies. In certain cultures God is also addressed as she!
God is neither HE or SHE but beyond gender. I prefer to use IT.

The gender of God can be viewed as a literal or as an allegorical aspect of a deity. In polytheistic religions, the gods are more likely to have literal sexual genders which would enable them to interact with each other, and even with humans, in a sexual way. In most monotheistic religions, there is no comparable being for God to relate to in a literal gender-based way, so the gender of this one-and-only deity is most likely to be an analogical statement of how humans and God address, and relate to, each other, with no sexual connotations.

As we say Man is Mortal......... it means women too; He denotes the POWER....... In english He is used for might and she for mild. That is why moon is addressed with the ''she pronoun"" and sun with He.
The are grammatical and literary ethics, I suppose.
