Brian Leiter has a summary of the recent rounds of faculty movement. Here was one interesting statistic from looking at the top 30 US departments.
There were 15 senior hires, 13 male and 2 female.
There were 13 junior hires, 6 male and 7 female.
Having 19 out of 28 hires by top 30 programs be male is not great, but it is promising that so many women are being hired at tenure-track level.
Where the junior hires came from is also interesting. The most successful program by this metric was UCLA, with 3 people hired. After that, NYU, Rutgers and MIT had two graduates each hired, with the other four coming from Princeton, Duke, Freie and Colorado.
