Some people think that Mozart was helped and his earliest compositions by his sister.

There’s also Barbara Strozzi.

Fanny Mendelssohn was not allowed to compose big works because they were thought to be on ladylike. Her parents told her that she could compose chamber music and songs. She did however collaborate extensively with her brother Felix. Guess she snuck a symphony by them.
