Male and female symbols appear to be in the unicode specification, which, so far as I can tell, contains every symbol known to man or woman of every colour, creed, or race.

One font I have looked at is Arial Unicode MS which is bundled with Microsoft Office 2000 and later, I believe, but any unicode font can be expected to have the same in the section called 'Miscellaneous Dingbats'. The Arial Unicode MS symbols are ‰Š (if these are readable here, that will say something - though not necessarily how one actually gets them onto an R graph!)

Best of luck - seems to me that your question has far broader applicability than just these two particular symbols.
