Why do men and women deposit fat in different places?

Hormone differences distribute fat in different places. Females need fat in breast and hip areas as an aid to birthing and caring for offspring. Additionally, as men and women age and hormones change, body fat may find a new preferential area to settle, and intramuscular/organ fat increases.  Intramuscular fat is not measurable by body fat calipers, it is assumed by age.
