Try this:

SELECT sub1.Department, Female, Male
FROM
(SELECT Distinct Department FROM TableA) sub1
 LEFT JOIN (SELECT Department, Count(*) as Female
    FROM TableA
    WHERE Sex = 'F'
    GROUP BY Department
) sub2 ON sub1.Department = sub2.Department
 LEFT JOIN (SELECT Department, Count(*) as Male
    FROM TableA
    WHERE Sex = 'M'
    GROUP BY Department
) sub3 ON sub1.Department = sub3.Department
ORDER BY sub1.Department

Y2Kingswood, not only is AaronAbend's query shorter, it runs much faster than mine, too.
