So, cupiscent, what you're saying is that no man has ever written a book that is "for" women? Or that all women are the same, and only are looking for one kind of book? That is very doubtful, in both cases. That's like saying there is no woman who could write a book that is "for" men.

If, in all the time she and her sister agents have been repping, they have not been able to find any book by any man that they would want to represent, it's pretty clear that they only want to represent women. Trying to make arcane excuses for why this occurs acts in opposition to Occam's razor, to wit: the simplest explanation is the most likely.

In this case, the simplest and most likely explanation as to why they only have women clients is that they only want to rep women. Which, again, is fine with me. But I would appreciate being up front about it, so we men wouldn't waste our time and take on the hurt of rejection when, by our gender, there was no chance they'd rep us.

It wouldn't be that difficult, IMHO, for them to put a statement on their site that says something like, "helping women get representation in the challenging world of publishing," or something similar. If they only want to rep women, why hide the fact? There is nothing wrong with that.

Can't comment as to Diana's focus, since I'm not her, but it might be better to look at it as her connecting more strongly with books written FOR women, as opposed to BY women. Now, obviously all the ones she's connected with strongly have also been written by women, but I imagine the FOR is more important in connecting with, loving, and wanting to work with/sell a book. And that FOR, in Diana's case, is fairly evident from her client base as advertised on her website. But of course she's not going to say "No men need apply" because what if, say, the next TA Pratt comes along, writing a kick-ass female-protag'd urban fantasy series, and she loves it?

Good points, justinaireland, but here's where I disagree. Take a look at their reported genres, per the Genre tab:

Fiction: Chick Lit, Children's, Commercial, Crime/Detective/Police, Erotica, Fantasy, Gay and Lesbian, Graphic Novels, Historical, Literary Fiction, Middle Grade, Military/Espionage, Offbeat/Quirky, Romance, Science Fiction, Thrillers/Suspense, Women's Fiction, Young Adult

Now, that seems like a comprehensive list to me. How about you? Science Fiction, Thrillers, Fantasy, Military/Espionage, etc. Doesn't sound like they're just looking for romance, etc.

Yet they only have women authors. My conclusion would be that they either are not looking for genres other than what you mentioned, and thus their listing is inaccurate, or that they are looking for those genres, but only from women authors. So let's explore that further.

If you go to the 'Reports' tab and check the 'Genre - Fiction' report, you'll see that the positive responses they've given fall into the following categories: fantasy, historical. middle grade, romance, thrillers/suspense, and young adult. Yet they have no, count 'em, not even one, male author.

From that, a reasonable person would conclude that it is not the genre, but the genitalia, that determines whom they represent. Again, that's fine with me - but I don't see any reason why they can't be upfront about it.

The list of clients has less to do with gender and more to do with what people write. Men tend to not write romance or write in genres that rely heavily on romance (urban fantasy, paranormal romance, etc.) The Diana Fox agency is heavily romance focused, a glimpse at their list will reveal that. So are quite a few other lit agencies: New Leaf, Bradford, etc. Just like there are some agencies that focus more on non-fiction or literary stuff. So the client list has less to do with WHO they'll represent and more to do with WHAT they represent.

TBH, a little bit of research into the books they've sold is important. If you're writing horror no one with a predominantly historical romance focused list is going to want your story.

They probably can't quite be so blatant about that, though. Gender discrimination laws and all.
