Huh. I just reread the play and I never caught Edmund's line "she slew herself"; I always interpreted it as Edmund being arrogant and presumptuous, but in reality, Regan, feeling ill and close to death would've attacked Goneril with the knife, which is probably more characteristic of both characters. But I see your point about the deaths of female characters. Once again, this is my interpretation and could be wrong, but the language of King Lear is all about being unable to "heave [your] heart into [your] mouth" and thus their deaths offstage are because Shakespeare didn't think he could convey the characters' emotions as really feel, rather than their pretences. excellent SOTRY. very MOVING!
