The 1991 Women's African Football Championship was the first staging of the CAF Women's Championship, the women's football championship in Africa (CAF). It determined the CAF's single qualifier for the FIFA Women's World Cup 1991. Nigeria won the tournament, defeating Cameroon in the final.

Eight teams were scheduled originally to play in the tournament, but half of them withdrew, causing only four teams to compete actively for the right to represent Africa in the World Cup. Cameroon in fact reached the final by default.

In the tournament, 22 goals were scored in 6 games.
