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.
