You can get a canon of women, no problem.  I would list early Su Friedrich.

But I wouldn't want to be raised as a potential name for a list because of
my gender.

As it happened, in the class I taught I found myself watching Norman
McLaren next to Joanna Quinn's "Girls' Night Out."  The comparison made
less sense than a comparison with early video on the Experimental
Television Center's collection, which is also abstract.  Want to look for a
woman on those discs?  No problem.  But I thought the comparison was
interesting because of differences between forms of abstraction, one made
on strips, the other made using signal.
