While the NASA programs incorporated many female astronauts during the Shuttle era, in the 1960's the flight positions were all filled by males. Moon landings took place from 1969 to 1972. With the early involvement of Soviet women as cosmonauts, it is possible that Russia would have included a woman on any lunar missions (but none were attempted).
