List of Women Photographers that inspire you and deserve further study into their work...
I hate to not be original, but I'll second Sander's list.
Sanders in trouble already! New wife / photog didn't make the list.

Perhaps not so curious. I consider Imogen to also be the equivalent or better of EW yet a lifetime of work often equal or better than her counterpart went very nearly un-noticed. Maybe Margrethe saw the writing on the wall?
Tina Modotti was an interesting character as well, Jim. As some may agree sometimes the more obscure photographers were the most interesting.
I respect Dorthea Lange and her work as well. (Shades of our own Nicole, eh?)

A quick list off the top of my head
Late 19th early 20th c.
Julia Margaret Cameron
Chansonetta Stanley Emmons
Mid 20th c.
(I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of any at the moment)
Debbie Fleming Caffery
A couple of women who shoot for National Geographic
I'm sure there are a lot more names to add!! Women have done quite well in this field, thank you very much!

Sally Mann, Ruth Bernhard, Tina Modotti, our own Valerie Brown. The other woman photographers on APUG are all an inspiration to me!
Using film since before it was hip.
