I was watching the werewolf versus vampire movie, underworld. There were sort of equal numbers of male and female vampires, but all the werewolves were men. Then I happen to think that I have never seen any movie with female werewolf. Are there female werewolf in the mythology?

The Howling had a female werewolf.

There's a TV show Bitten on Netflix (Hulu?) about a female werewolf.

The Ginger Snaps series is about two sisters affected by the curse, mainly as a horror metaphor for puberty. The film Dog Soldiers concerns a family/clan of werewolves in Scotland, with a female werewolf having a major role. Several female werewolves also appear in Niel Jordan's arthouse werewolf anthology film A Company of Wolves.

Thirty year old spoiler alert, but American Werewolf in Paris features one prominently. The transformed weres are essentially sexless, though.

Also not a movie, but the World of Darkness setting from White Wolf games heavily featured Werewolves of both genders.

TristramEvans has an awesome list though, I hadn't even heard of some of those!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer had a group of werewolves in a few episodes, and some were women.

There was one in an episode of "The Dresden Files".

Great, thanks. No I have some Netflixing to do.

Is it fair to assume that it's impossible to distinguish a male and female werewolf after they've made the transition?

"Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright."

This needs an update to: "even a person who is …"

That Once upon a time show on ABC (in the US) has Little Red Riding Hood (5 year old spoiler) becoming the Big Bad Wolf. So, that counts, doesn't it?

Depends on the makeup and effects departments. Reaper certainly has a clearly (ahem) female werewolf.

Captain Angua von Uberwald in the Discworld series.

Well, you can tell male and female wolves apart if you know what to look for, so I can't see why it should be impossible, whether they turn into more-or-less normal wolves or into half-human half-wolf monstrosities. But in 28mm scale or smaller, there's surely no problem in using the same figures for both sexes if that's what you want.
