Suttonhoo's brilliant observation

I'm guessing not."

In the episodes I saw, there weren't even female (speaking) characters (there were human women extras). It's hard to have gender equality without two genders portrayed.

The movies portrayed female scientists (both ape and human), but the human one fainted(!) When the ape one first spoke.

Zira has a nice speech about feminism in Escape. She's probably the best statement for gender equality throughout. She's often gutsier than Cornelius.
