This question is asked by R. Yitshak Weiss in Minhat AsherYitshak (8:15). He answers based on the Lev Aryeh to Hullin 60b. An aggada states that the moon complained about its equivalence with the sun. To rectify this, the moon was lessened. The Lev Aryeh explains that the alternative solution; having the sun be increased, is not mentioned, since the sun's intensity was already diminished (cf. Hagigah 12a). Now, notes R. Weiss, why was the sun's output diminished--due to the future sins of Man, which led them to lose their merit in the light. Since those sins all resulted from the original sin, which was the impetus of Eve, it is her (indirect) fault that the moon had to be shrink, since the luminaries couldn't be made equal by increasing the sun.

And that...is the justification for women not to say Kiddush Levana.
