Interestingly, I remember reading that colour perception is gender dependent, with a significantly larger percentage of males suffering from colour perception problems.

Of course can't remember the source, that comes with my age.

Secondly not the type of fact that is easy to work into the after dinner conversation.

color perception deficiencies are more common in males, but not rare in females either. Conversely, better and especially significantly better color distinction is something uniquely female due to genetic factors. Only females can be tetrachromats, for example, with the notable exception of hybrids/genetic mozaics. As long as you have female DNA in the right places in your body, you can be a tetrachromat, no matter your gender, but genetic pick n' mix cases are rather rare as well!
