The good news is, FFXIV has some really good, powerful female NPCs, and almost all of the gear that female player characters can wear is reasonable. Whether for warding off attacks (for melee characters), or for running around outside in the snows of Coerthas or underground in a cold and damp dungeon (for mages).

The bad news is it's pretty much saturated with sexism and rape references, to the point where it feels like any female NPC who can be threatened with harassment will and most of them read like they were written by a man who thinks it is hilarious.

I've compiled a list of somewhat spoileriffic examples here, for anyone who wants to gauge their personal comfort level.
