Why does sexism still exist in academia?

Sexism is alive and well in academia thanks in large part to the strong influence of SJWs.
Most colleges have kangaroo courts that punish accused males without due process. Most colleges have very anti-male innocent bystander and rape prevention training. Colleges often use affirmative action in their hiring practices, with many actively preferring female candidates in STEM areas especially. Colleges typically enforce Title IX in a very one-sided sexist fashion. For example, they will come down on an athletic department that has slightly more males than females in athletics, but of course not do the same for aerobics, palates, etc. that have vastly more females. We see the same with courses. Colleges make a big deal out of more men going into STEMS but not about more women going into women's studies, nursing, etc. We of course see safe space for women, but not men. There are more scholarships for women than men.
Of course, the sexism starts long before college. In the U.S., we passed legislation encouraging K-12 to focus on girls in education over boys and it's worked. Since it's passage, boys have continually done worse and worse with fewer going onto college compared to girls. The AAUW (feminist education lobby), actively pushed one-sided sexist practices in all levels of eduction including "no boys allowed" educational advancement opportunities for girls that is denied boys. Women's' studies courses are not an unbiased view of gender issue, they are typically noting more than feminist agenda pushed onto pliable minds.
Education is incredibly sexist.
The reason why is because of feminism and SJW influence on education. The biased Title IX sexual assault practices for example are a direct result of feminists pushing the Department of Education and Obama administration. The laws I mentioned were proposed by the feminist group the AAUW. It was the National Organization of Women with support from a foundation that pushed for the establishment of biased feminist studies courses.

Yes, women make up 60%+ of students and much academia spouts nonsense concepts hostile to men. All while women are privileged over men in many areas in terms of admissions, grading standards and financial support, etc.

I may be way out on third base here, still the same, how can it be sexism when we, women choose what we chose. Let's take STEM, for example, the only reason there are fewer females in those classes is because more women drop out or choose to enter. Therefore; how can that be based upon sexism. And have we truly proved our worth? Men for years have proved their worth and they worked hard at it. Us ....

"Why does sexism still exist in academia?"
Feminism and the ideology of the Left has taken over academia and universities all over the first world. There is no viewpoint "diversity" at all in any of those spaces. The one thing in common with all these feminist/sjw/Leftist ideologies is that they view men as "oppressors". So sexism against men is rampant and sanctioned by the administration in academia.
