Some interesting tidbits:

Adam Tondowsky says:  I think they’re all by American or British Artists. Of course, the American ones include a handful of Latino records. There may be one or two additions to America or Britain but no more than that. I don’t think that’s unexpected though as I don’t know that it’s realistic to expect that the NPR editors will know a great deal of world music. Just simply rename this list in your mind as NPR’s greatest 150 British and American albums by women.

HR Sutton says: I just created Youtube playlists for the list but I divided them by decades because I don’t care about the rankings. This way I can see the progression from 1964 to 2016. The only two I couldn’t get were Liz Phair Exile in Guysville and Beyoncé Lemonade.
