Females tend to be larger than males. The main reason why is during fertilization, the male has to climb ontop of the female in a position called amplexus and sprays his sperm over the eggs as she lays them in the water. The female needs to be larger in order to support the weight of the male.
Female frogs are usually larger than males because they need nutrients for the tadpoles and the fat to keep the eggs warm.
