The MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video is one of the original general awards that has been handed out every year since the first annual MTV Video Music Awards in 1984. In 2007, however, the award was briefly renamed Female Artist of the Year, and it awarded the artist's whole body of work for that year rather than a specific video. In 2008, though, the award returned to its original name. Madonna is this award's biggest winner and nominee, as three out of her twelve nominated videos have won this award.

The 2009 and 2013 winner of the award is Taylor Swift for her videos "You Belong with Me" and "I Knew You Were Trouble"
The 2010 and 2011 winner of the award is Lady Gaga for her videos "Bad Romance" and "Born This Way." She's the third female to won the award for two consecutive years.
The 2014 winner of the award is Katy Perry for her video "Dark Horse"
