I think it would be informative to indicate on Figure 2 when each journal had a male or female EIC (e.g. with changing solid/dashed line-styles). Perhaps also helpful to indicate all changes of EIC, not just changes from male to female or vice versa (e.g. with vertical lines marking each transition).
For example, it is interesting to see that Ann. Rev. Ecol., Evol., & Syst. (abbreviated AREES in Fig.3) attained 50% female representation between 1995 and about 1998 (?), but then the proportion fell rapidly for a few years. Did the increase coincide with a female EIC and the fall with a male EIC? Or, more generally, do the apparent break-points in the temporal trends coincide with a change in EIC?
One other trivial suggestion, I think it's unhelpful to have the figures separated from their captions (especially with the references between them as they are here). If the journal requires a separate page of figure captions, I'd be inclined to duplicate each caption under its figure as well.
