you may get an idea from this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parthenogenesis

and for a related article you can read this: http://www.biology-online.org/articles/sex_lizards.html

Easy. Provide eggs and X-spermatozoa from the bank. That's it. That's your female world with different genes ;)

Why??? If there is no males at all - for what??? (Just now was this confusing story about two asronaft women for one men...)
For planet of womens ;))) can following think be done: from each ovum nucleos will be isolated, fused with each ather, and this fused nucleos will be replaced within one of the ovum that we was had at the begining of the procedure. It will be "fertilisation". And parthenogenesis is only very, very slightly diffenretn from cloning within the chain of generation.
But if n this planet at liast one male will be - it will be somethink terrible! But, furtunately our sex is determinated by genetic contest and not by the condition...
Evolution will arrange everything
