This university is very fair to female students and faculty members.
Academia is rife with sexism in older, male tenured PIs, be careful.
I completed a two-year Master's degree with a research assistantship throughout. There are quite a few women in administrative roles and as students. There are also several women in faculty, but women are disproportionately adjunct faculty rather than tenure-track. It seemed like students were treated fairly, but that it would be tough to pursue a PhD or a tenure position in the department.
There are a ton of women working here, but the curatorial staff is overwhelmingly male - they could do a lot better on equality at the curatorial level and in the higher levels of administration. It does seem to be a fairly flexible environment for maternity leave, which is great.
