Does anyone recommend qualified female teachers of Mahamudra and Dzogchen meditation/teachings?

Lama Pema and Lama Yeshe, in Ashland, OR, get my "seal of approval" for what it's worth.

I am not qualified to make recommendations, but I will point out the following:

Anne Klein: http://www.dawnmountain.org/
Tsultrim Allione: http://taramandala.org
Dechen Yeshe Wangmo: http://jnanasukha.org/
Tsering Everst: http://en.chagdud.org/lama-tsering-everest/
Sangye Khandro: http://www.berotsana.org/sangye-khandro/

I can't say anything about her level of realization per se, but Lama Willa is a translator, has done 7 NgonDros, a couple 3 year retreats, has taught a 3 year retreat, and has a PhD. in Tibetan Studies from Harvard. Plus she's a very nice person.

A human being has his limits. And thus, in every conceivable way, with every possible means, he tries to make the teaching enter into his own limits. ChNN

"There is no such thing as the real mind. Ridding yourself of delusion: that's the real mind."
(Sheng-yen: Getting the Buddha Mind, p 73)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."

(Nanyue Mingzan: Enjoying the Way, tr. Jeff Shore; T51n2076, p461b24-26)

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

I agree with Cone. These are my teachers and I am presently studying Mahamudra meditation with Lama Yeshe.

If you are in Europe, especially in Sweden, you should try to meet Druponma Konchog Khandro Rinpoche, she is the real deal and master of both mahamudra and dzogchen:
