I plan to spend 3 months in the CA Sierras this summer. Do you have a list of women’s / hiking groups in CA Sierras?

You are going to have a wonderful time in the Sierra Nevadas! There are many great places for hiking, camping, and backpacking in the Sierras. I would highly recommend seeing Yosemite, then doing some backcountry exploring (if you like backpacking).
Besides Yosemite (which can get crowded with tourists in the summer), I like Sabrina Lake, Mt. Whitney (day hikes from the Whitney Portal campground are really nice), Cottonwood Lakes, and Sequoia National Park.
I have a list of organizations that you should find helpful. The group that is really good for CA Sierra Nevada trips is the Sierra Club – they have low cost trips as well as higher priced multi-day trips.
Also, the U.S. retailer REI has trips to Yosemite, backpacking trips in Sequoia, and a variety of 3 and 4 day Sierra Nevada trips.
Do you have a question for the Hiking Lady?
