JP lays it down.
Bill Kreutzmann tells it like he sees it; may many Heads take note.
Apart from Susie Ibarra that is, second on the list!!!
I don't know why it seems a predominantly "male" instrument; i am without answer too! I'm certain there are many, many women who play. But as for more "mainstream acceptance", i regret i'm at a a loss.
For me, Susie Ibarra is one of the deepest inspirations for me; ever since seeing her perform with David S. Ware in London i was transfixed. Incredible touch and sensitivity; beautiful melodicism.
See here for examples of her playing -

She really changed my drumming life; along with Bill and Mickey, Susie is a continuous source of inspiration.
that your list is all men. As a former drummer in school and university bands, for many years, I have always wondered why this is such a male-dominated instrument. I have never in all of these years of thinking about it, come up with a satisfying explanation. Anybody wanna give it a (rim) shot?
ba da BOOM! :)
I am not young enough to know everything.
