Other excellent all-women/woman-fronted bands:

Veruca Salt

I listened to these bands alongside Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden in the early 90s. Interestingly, that period was a lot less hostile to women rockers, probably, because the industry (and the listening audience) was not mandating that its women all look like blow up dolls. Grunge, ironically, was probably the best thing that could happen for girl power in the music industry...
