However, if you are applying to an ELITE school i.e. Harvard, Yale, Stanford etc then the standards are higher and you should put in a lot of effort to getting solid LOR's.
I understand feeling awkward about approaching an old professor for a recommendation, but the fact is that if you need it, it must be done.
I find the gender issue to be a little silly, but that aside, since you already have one great academic LOR and have been out of school for a while, why not ask an employer?
