In terms of last year, I have just been reading the Philip K Dick shortlist and was very impressed by five of the seven nominees - four of which were by women writers, and none of which got Hugo nominations!

The 2006 Philip K. Dick Award shortlist is:

SPIN CONTROL by Chris Moriarty (Bantam Spectra)
CATALYST by Nina Kiriki Hoffman (Tachyon Publications)

Last year the shortlist also had a few women authors:

M. M. Buckner (Mary M. Buckner) also won it for WAR SURF.

I've also heard mention of the nominees for the Andre Norton award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy:

Midnighters: Touching Darkness by Scott Westerfeld.
Peeps by Scott Westerfeld.
Devilish by Maureen Johnson.

And in addition to FARTHING, which I already mentioned, the Nebula Awards ballot has:
