Re: RARA-AVIS: Woman noir?

I can't think of a single female noir writer from that era. Patricia Highsmith was a little later, but she does qualify. Strangers on a Train is from 1950. I wonder if Margaret Millar would qualify. Or some of Josephine Tey's work (Brat Farrar, specifically).

On the other hand, there were a few female hardboiled writers, such as Leigh Brackett and Dolores Hitchens.
