The women's high jump at the 2013 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Luzhniki Stadium on 15–17 August.[1]

It took 1.92 to make the final. In the final, 6 cleared 1.97, world leader and Olympic silver medalist Brigetta Barrett, Olympic gold medalist and defending champion Anna Chicherova and European indoor champion Ruth Beitia still perfect. But at 2.00, only Barrett and Olympic bronze medalist Svetlana Shkolina made it, both on the first attempt, giving Barrett the lead and leaving Chicherova and Beitia tied for bronze. At 2.03, Shkolina reversed that position with a first attempt clearance. Barrett had no answer.
