Female World Series of Poker Bracelet Winners

Vera Richmond became the first woman to win an open WSOP event in 1982, taking down the $1,000 Limit Ace-to-Five Draw for $38,500 over 76 opponents, but it would be fourteen years before Barbara Enright joined her in the winner's circle. Linda Johnson and Maria Stern won in 1997 before a couple of barren years.

Since 2000, women have won 27 open bracelets, including at least one each year from 2012 to 2021.
