The pay and hours are pretty standard "work hard so at you at least have something nice on your resume." Men and women are treated just as poorly when you're at the bottom of the totem pole in a research lab, but generally women have fewer pay raises, if any.

Your experience as a graduate student at Stanford will depend almost entirely on 1) your department, and 2) your PI. If you plan to have kids in graduate school, make sure to have a boss who is explicitly cool with that, or else your life could become hell...

There are a lot of women in graduate school, but fewer in the upper ranks of professor.

The "paid" portion is actually disability pay, for which there is a bit of effort needed to enroll and maintain. Pay is either at 55% or 60% of your normal salary. The 2 weeks unpaid is actually the waiting period between disability and CFRA benefits where they can take, on average, 80 hours from your vacation time for those two weeks if you have vacation time saved up.

Partial pay during leave. Not as generous as you'd think for a big university. Very dependent on role you are in how time off is viewed.
