I'm looking for any manga, manhua, or manhwa... even other languages books that was translated into English that has a female protagonist but was transported back in time or to another world.

Peerless Alchemist
They Say I Was Born a King's Daughter
Jashin Average (Novel) (I've only read until the point that it seems like it would be the end of the series, but apparently isn't)
Otome Game no Burikko Akuyaku Onna wa Mahou Otaku ni Natta (Novel) (I read this for like 50 chapters, I do not know what has happened since. It could be bad now. I don't know. The 50 chapter I've read were good though) (An Otome Game's Burikko Villainess Turned into a Magic Otaku)
Feng ni Tianxia
Fushigi Yuugi (old school isekai, nostalgia manga. Does this even count anymore?)
Houshin Shinai Engi
Fukushuu wo chikatta shironeko wa ryuuou no hiza no jou de damin wo musaboru (A Vengeful White Cat Lounges Around on the Dragon King's Lap)
Honzuki no Gekokujou (Ascendance of a Bookworm)
Seijo no Maryoku wa Bannou desu (The Saint's Magic Ability is Omnipotent)
+a no Tachiichi

Here's the tip I use when I'm searching for isekai with female protagonists. When searching isekai-related tags, if you specify Shoujo or Josei, there's a higher chance of finding one with female protagonists. You'll miss out on untagged or shounen/seinen isekai, but if you are only looking for female protagonists, it's a lot faster

EDIT: Wow some of these names are long. I'm going to add the english titles/abbreviations for convenience

The request just shows how useless and nonsensical the term Isekai is.
The Vision of Escaflowne (stick to the TV anime), Fushigi Yuugi, Inu Yasha, Red River and especially The Twelve Kingdoms (Novel) (the anime adaptation is good) would have fallen under the sub-genre if the term "Transported to Another World" wasn´t the most common descriptor back then. Even Narnia, or in our case Allice in Wonderland, fulfills all criteria to be Isekai, lol.

Ashi-Girl or Namida Ame to Serenade are also Isekai but no one outside of Japan calls female demographic manga by that term it seems. Even 7 Seeds comes somewhat close, it´s complicated. Again, search with the category Transported to Another World and so on instead.

Edit: The wiki article about Isekai is a goddam travesty. The impossible to define "genre" is WAY older than the early 90s. Rumiko´s Fire Tripper -part of Rumic World and adapted to an OVA in 1985- is from the early 80s. Even Mira wrote an Isekai with King of Wolves in 1989, before it was cool. Huh. What a genre pioneer. 🤣

So going on residentgrigo's rant, I thought of some older ones that weren't called isekai back in the day;

Kanata Kara
Please save my earth
Shut Hell
2nding Red River

These are some modern ones, all basically are based on light novels or are webtoons; (All of the female leads basically look the same for a lot of them... but they have varying levels of intelligence )
The Duchess' 50 Tea Recipes
Why Are You Doing This, Duke?
Survive as the Hero's Wife
Suddenly Became A Princess One Day
Priscilla's Marriage Request
I Am a Child of This House
Sincerely: I Became a Duke's Maid
Lady Baby
Koushaku Reijou no Tashinami (this one has the smartest protagonist of the lot)

Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?
