If you care to know more, look for books by Eric Davin, Partners in Wonder, and by Lisa Yaszek, Galactic Suburbia: Recovering Women’s Science Fiction. Both cover different aspects of women in science fiction, and will give you many more names for your list.

Pleased to find I'd read 30 of the authors on your list! I can highly recommend Chelsea Quin Yarbro, her stuff (particularly her Saint Germaine stuff) is great!
