Each major god has a female consort.  I showed you images of Vishnu with Lakshmi and Shiva with Parvati. There are a number of powerful demon-fighting goddesses often overlapping with each other called "Kali," "Durga," and other names. Saraswati is also a popular goddess who is regarded as the spouse of Brahma.
