The demographics simply show that Power Rangers is most popular amongst young boys. It's why the girls never get powered up versions, get fewer toy releases and why we'll likely never see a female red lead. Legend of Korra may be a good example of how it could
work, if the show was aimed at a different audience. But it could just as easily fail if they tried that and lose their old audience at the same time, which would outright kill the show.
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see a female red, but they're not going to suddenly change their target demographic, just as My Little Pony isn't going to change because of the sudden interest from Brony's.
