The top 35 female composers in classical music

Like any "top this" or "greatest that" list, the linked overview of top 35 female composers of the 20th and 21st century can be criticized for some inclusions and exclusions. All in all, I think Anne Midgette did a good job - the main name I'm missing is Bacewicz. Well worth reading and exploring with the included YouTube examples. My personal recommendations: Gubaidulina, Chin, and Saariaho.
