I've got as non hidden ability female breeding with a hidden ability male. Will they still produce offspring with a hidden ability? Or can only females pass it down?

They can. But with less chance.

The correct answer is that males and genderless pokemon can pass down the hidden ability if and only if they breed with a ditto. It's less clear if this has a lower chance of happening than with a female.
