I see what you did there.
She isn't playing a P bass with flats in the pocket! She's soloing! She's playing an expensive bass that isn't a Fender! TALKBASS HERESY!!!
I can't believe I forgot about Meshell Ndegeocello. Boy do I feel like an idiot.
Always loved this bass line.
Many great players mentioned in this post!
I cast my vote for Julie Slick!
My fav is Bonnie Buitrago from Nashville Pussy.
Jennifer Condos is a great player. I'm familiar with her from Joe Henry tours, but she has a nice resume:

I love Sean's style.
Cindy Coulter of This Ascension
Esperanza Spalding is spectacular!
I went back and edited my original list. How could I forget Leather Tuscadero aka Suzi Quatro.
Esperanza. No contest.
Oh yeah. I'm definitely a fan.
Kira from Black Flag
I have a soft spot for their original bassist Corey Parks. Probably because she breathed fire right over my head at a tiny club gig (Crocodile Cafe) back in 98ish!
There are lots of them. Tal and Esperanza and all them are great players, but for me I prefer the rockers, the ones with 'tude.
For this, it's Johnette Napolitano, without competition.
Is she more of a singer/songwriter than a bassist? Well, so was Phil Lynott if you want to look at it that way. But no other women in the field have the dominant presence in their band the way she does.
I gotta say I liked Suzy Quatro's vibe. Nobody else pulls that off like that, not even Joan Jett who tried.
That chick in Rush is pretty good too....
But she's still a female bassist.
