They gave a few credits in the USA reprint of Egmont stories. None of them
were women.

In the Dutch comic production, there was at least one woman: the story
writer Patty Klein. She also did a lot of non-Disney comic stories.

Same in Holland. Another female lead character: Madam Mim (is that a 
female? 8-).
BTW: They made a special version of the 'Donald Duck' weekly in Holland,
a few years ago. It was called 'Daisy Duck'. The cover showed daisy
covering the word "Donald" of the logo with "Daisy". The comic contained
Daisy Duck stories _only_. I guess it was a gesture to all those letters
from fans saying Daisy should have more stories of her own.
