Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.

We have a large fraction of female faculty and a very female-friendly environment. As one women scientist said recently, we have enough women in the department that we no longer have to keep justifying ourselves: we are "over the hump".

Has the institution had a Climate for Women in Physics Site Visit or Gender Equity Conversation?
