When you have accusations against you that are based on gender discrimination there really is only one thing that you can do. You must file a complaint with the EEOC in your state, alleging gender discrimination, so that a neutral third party government agency can come in and investigate the matter fully.
In this way, you obtain immediate protections against retaliation and you preserve your right to sue in federal court. An EEOC complaint in a prerequisite to suit, so it is a process you would have to accomplish anyway.

No honest attorney can tell you, on the limited facts you've given here, whether you have a valid complaint. Many dishonest ones though, expecting a retainer fee, would absolutely say you have a case.
What I can say is that you have the basic framework of a claim. If accusations have been made against you and your gender appears to be at the center of those allegations (similar complaints wouldn't be made about a male), then you have the prima facie facts to support a claim. Only after the EEOC investigation though would you really know. This is why most attorneys won't take a case until you've completed the EEOC process.
