From Anonymous:

A few years ago when I was applying to graduate school, I had a few interviews at one school with a few faculty members in the department, including the dean. The dean asked which faculty members I would be interesting in working with, and I mentioned one of the female professors in the department. He immediately began trashing her work and her character. He kept disparagingly referring to her “silly little [devices she invented and won a bunch of prestigious awards for]”.

If they treat the female faculty that way in the department, how am I ever going to get support as a female graduate student? No thanks.
