There basically isn't any difference.

People often don't believe this and ask for peer-reviewed studies, etc.

I also did a lot of casting about Pubmed for any article actually specifically discussing whether there's a difference in this dimension. But the result that there is no difference between sexes was so reliably reproduced (without comment, you have to look at the tables) anytime I found a study that collected that data (usually in the aim of answering a more interesting question) that I can only assume it is simply ambient knowledge for anyone doing anthropometry and thus not considered worth publishing, discussing or citing.

Which, interestingly, allows the mistake to propagate among people who don't do anthropometry.
