Shouldn't this return me all females characters? or at least the first 100?

Filters are not in place yet. See this thread on Giant Bomb for more details.

Any word on when the ComicVine API will get a search resource like the GiantBomb API?

OK, the Search resource has been turned on.  Docs have been updated.

Curious if there is any word about which filters are available to use yet. I tried the name, gender, etc fields, but it still looks like all results are being returned.

Gender, etc. are still not supported filters. Check the documentation for each resource type to see what kind of filters are supported. The search resource is the one you'd use for searching, but it only supports title searches. Other fields are not searchable.

Thanks, I got the search working the way I want. Now to start writing that web app!

Eh? Is what on a forum? I don't understand your question.
