Are you sure? Not calling you a liar but that would be strange considering we did get female aliens in the show like the bug queen, Princess Snake, Zangya etc. (I know those are filler) so it would be weird to not have any female aliens in the manga itself.
I’m pretty sure there are no female characters with non-human or alien designs in the manga. As you said, those characters you mentioned were Toei creations.

I said it before, but while it might be possible to have a more feminine looking and acting Namekian, a true "female" Namekian wouldn't be possible (without a wish from the Dragon or some other plot device).
Cool stuff that I upload here because Youtube will copyright claim it: https://vimeo.com/user60967147

Huh.... Just thought of something out of that ^

What if Namekians are the way they are from abusing the Dragon Balls in the past? Maybe they were once very humanlike, but a series of crises forced them to seek magical solutions. Fertility crisis? Wish to become asexual. Scarce food? Wish to be able to only drink water to survive. Severe racism? Wish to all become green. And so on and so forth. And the cataclysm that forced Kamiccolo or whatever his name once was to flee to Earth was actually the consequences of abusing the Dragon Balls.

Just a fun thought.

King Piccolo was the first Namekian introduced in the story and reproduced asexually so maybe Toriyama thought he had to make their entire race male. The Kais and Kaioshin are born from a fruit and genderless but also appear male (at least the ones drawn by Toriyama). Not sure about the Angels since there are both male and female Angels and they have a father so maybe we'll see a Grand Priestess one day.
