Female pattern baldness does exist

Women can and do experience thinning hair as early as in their 20s. Common causes include diet, hormones and genetics. Because of the range of causes for women, it can be more difficult to diagnose the causes, but there are some tests that can be done, as well as some considerations to take. There are some treatment options, including Women's Rogaine (containing minoxidil) but development of these types of products aren't exactly at the top of the drug company priority lists.

This topic probably doesn't fall into the 'apparently common knowledge' category, but a topic of increasing interest to me.
