There are no Greek deities that can only be worshiped by a particular gender identity.
None.
Not Artemis. Not Hera. Not Hestia. Not Ares. No one.
If anyone says “so-and-so hates men” or “so-and-so should only be worshiped by male devotees” they are incorrect. Historically and factually incorrect. All Greek deities have historical examples of worshipers from multiple genders. The most notorious targets for the “so-and-so hates this particular gender” accusations, Ares and Artemis, are in fact KNOWN for having worshipers of genders that are not theirs; Ares is known as “Ares, feasted by women” and Artemis is primarily a Goddess of Hunters, which in ancient Greece would strongly imply primarily MALE hunters. 
This almost certainly goes for other pantheons as well, but I can personally guarantee it goes for at least the Greek pantheon.
Your gender does not restrict who you can worship.
That is all.
Carry on.
