RARA-AVIS: early woman h-b writers

From: George Upper ( gcupper3@yahoo.com)

Everyone is familiar with the woman hard-boiled writers who have become popular over the past couple of decades--Paretsky, Grafton, etc. (I should probably say "detective writers" here instead of
"hard-boiled" to avoid the potential debate on the h-b-ness of the above named authors.)

Anyway, I'm interested in earlier woman h-b writers--the true female pioneers in the field, so to speak. Any suggestions on who I might seek out as belonging to this group?
