Solo females with UK number one albums

The UK album chart began back in 1956 and it took 21 years until the first solo female had a chart-topping album by which time there had already been 189 number one albums prior to that. Over the following 11 years there were only 15 more occurances although there have been more in recent times, but then again there sales/download figures are so much lower than they used to be to make number one.

Here’s the list of the first 15.
