She has been cited as the first woman to write both the music and lyrics for a Broadway musical and the first woman to win a Grammy for the score of a Broadway musical.

She was the first woman to write book, music, and lyrics to a Broadway musical; for the first woman to write music and lyrics, you have to go back to 1942's Count Me In, with music and lyrics by Ann Ronell. (I don't think anything predates that.)
