First, don't ever, ever, ever, ever, ever think you can't do something just because it's male dominated. EVER.
If you're torn between producing and directing try both and see which one you like the best. Ava DuVernay is a writer, producer and director. I think she'd be a great role model for you. Check out her work and how she got to where she is now.
Don't be afraid to just go for it. Even if you start out just making short films with your phone. Anything is better than just waiting.
Read loads of books (you never know what's going to be adapted into the next big thing), watch tons of movies, learn from your mistakes and have a great time while you experiement with film.
