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

Our two current female faculty members are excellent role models and mentors for women, and our programs have had very strong female participation at the both graduate and undergraduate levels. In 2010, we had 9 B.S. degrees and 17 (!) M.S. degrees with research theses, 6 of whom were women.
