Josephine Baker, in her French Free Air Force uniform, and Lena Horne in front of the Lincoln Memorial at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, 28 Aug 1963. 
Josephine Baker was the only woman to address the crowds that day.
UPDATE 23/9/2013:

Daisy Bates was actually the only woman to deliver one of the March’s keynote addresses. Bates was the substitute speaker for Myrlie Evers, who was originally scheduled to speak but was unable to attend the event.
