Hang on, what about solo progressive artist Laurence Vanay, aka Jacqueline Thibault?

She was also one of the players on husband Laurent Thibault's classic Mais On Ne Peut Pas Rêver Tout Le Temps.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Sorry, but Jefferson Airplane for prog is like having marshmallow rice krispies treats for Christmas dinner LOL  I'm not covering early psych and proto on this one :)

you should listen to the first solo album of Grace Slick. in my opinion definitely a prog album. there even is a 15 minute epic on it, the title track "Manhole"

I don't think that Eskaton has been mentioned yet, which is a particular favourite of mine and I didn't see in the list.

- Paule Kleynnaert / vocals, synth
- Amara Tahir / vocals

That's not a bad album at all. Probably one of her best. I like the Paul Kantnor collabs as well. Somehow i just put Grace Slick in the same category as Nico. Art rock / psychedelic folk and the like but not really progressive enough for inclusion into the club. Sorry :(

However, you did remind me about Julie Slick! Totally unrelated to Grace but definately prog!!!

Yes indeed! Wow! I'm surprised how many women performed in some of the most popular prog acts and i never knew about it, however i haven't kept up with TG's newer releases. Added! Thanks :)

Let's not forget Frequency Drift, a German prog outfit with quite a few women in their ranks during the years: Antje Auer, Isa Fallenbacher, Melanie Mau and - last but not least - Nerissa Schwarz, a.o.

All excellent suggestions and ALL added. Even found more female musicians than you listed ;)

Indeed. Both missing and needed. Added. Thanks!

Great list however most of these were already there. I did neglect Godspeed, Harmonium and Malicorne, so thanks! 

BTW in Godspeed someone is named Norsola. Is that a female name? One of the challenges of this list is that i find gender names in Japanese, Finnish and other non-Indo-European languages to be somewhat of a challenge!

My love for all-female Japanese bands knows no bounds, so here's a few:

Paranoid Void: Meguri (vocals, guitar), Yu-Ki (bass, backing vocals), Mipow (drums, backing vocals)
Very progressive, jazzy math rock...not on the archives yet, someday I'll submit them (that team has enough to deal with I think).

Tricot: Ikkyu Nakajima (vocals, guitar), Kida Motifo (guitar, backing vocals), Hiromi Hirohiro (bass, backing vocals), Yusuke Yoshida (drums)
Math rock, and on the archives! A little more indie than Paranoid Void, but still cool and oddball.

Angel'in Heavy Syrup: Mine Nakao (guitar, vocals), Mineko Itakura (bass, vocals), Fusao Toda (guitar), Tomoko Takahara (drums, flute), Mandrake Yoko (drums), Naoko Otani (drums)
Didn't check if you already had this gang on yet...trippy, shoegazy psychedelic prog rock.
