Why do men and women's buttons do up differently?

Men have buttons on the right side of their shirts and trousers, but women have them on the left. What's the reason for this?

One suggested reason is that women were dressed by a maid, who--being usually right-handed, and would be facing the blouse--required reversed buttons.
