I believe Issui Ogawa is also male. Anyway, I'm afraid my pondering about the list was not just about the strong presence of female authors, for there is shouldn't be anything strange or odd about that. If it is indeed just a list of 20 good SF/F books, with no rhyme or reason behind it, OK. Good to have such lists.
I was just baffled whether there was something additional that joins these 20 books together, since they are from different eras, different genres, possibly even age groups, part of series and so on. It feels a bit like a list from a "Recommended Books" discussion at Åcon, compiled by a panel of somewhat different readers. (Which gives me an idea for Åcon 9 Recommended Books discussion group subject!)
