My reply

I have a rule of thumb when looking for work: If the writers are all
female, look elsewhere. In my experience, an all female writing group
indicates lower wages, lower status, and all sorts of negative things. I
would also steer *far* away from an all female group where a male is the
manager.

I may miss a few good jobs with this, but I find my rights are better
protected when the manager (male or female) is looking to build a good
department with good writers. The result of that type of search is usually
a mix of male and female writers.
