To whom should I report an employer that hires by gender?

An Oregon-based employer is posting job ads that explicitly seek workers only of a specific gender, when gender is clearly not relevant to the job. Should I report this to someone, and to whom?

My state Attorney General seems to only accept consumer complaints, and I've never done business with this employer. U.S. EEOC complaints seem to be for people discriminated against, and are complicated to file. I have no interested in the job being posted, and am of the preferred gender even if I did. Is there any way to submit a tip -- ideally anonymous, but I'll use my name if I must -- just to alert the appropriate enforcement body to what is happening here?
