I don't have a dog in this fight, but just off the top of my head, Elizabeth I of England and Catherine the Great of Russia were two of the greatest, most intelligent, most successful sovereigns of all time.

Isabella of Spain also was no dog.

Let's change the the focus of the question every so slightly.

I'm sure we can all agree that it's the very nature of a bell curve for there to be exceptional individuals at either end at any given time.
Let's play the game of "throw out the extremes" and focus on the main mass.

With that in mind, let's change the question to:

Make a list of significant civilizations in the entirety of recorded human history that did NOT spiral into a flaming crater of socialism within a handful of generations of giving their women the vote.

How long is that list?

Consider the 19th. It would appear that we are right on-track and on-time with what history tells us we should expect.
