Typically you would get more male flowers in the initial flowering stage. Wait for a few weeks you should start seeing female flowers. You can try spraying 5 gms/L of boric acid to induce female flowering. This is typically a solution for hot summers. I suggest you wait for couple of weeks before resorting to spraying.

The abundance of male flowers at start of flowering is obviously an invitation to the pollinators such as bees, butterflies and moths. The female flowers surely follow.
In my plants, the initial gourds just grew a little and then withered. But once they started, now they are unstoppable.
So a little patience....
