Can someone please post the list of female seers to whom the Vedic Samhita mantras were revealed?

Like a list of seer and sukta and mantra with mandala or chapter number would be highly appreciated

  • exshaustive llist would be appreciated... Commented Feb 22, 2019 at 20:33
  • Yeah, it would be good to have a list of all female seers across all 4 Vedas. But I'm not sure if anyone has compiled such a list. R. L. Kashyap doesn't discuss ṛṣhikās at all in his summaries/translations of the other 3 Vedas. @RakeshJoshi Commented Feb 22, 2019 at 21:16
