While breeding, can males pass down a hidden ability?

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?

Only with a Ditto.

They can. But with less chance.

Mixed answers... would anyone happen to have a speed boost female Venipede with attack and def IVs then...?

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.
