Alexandra Skoglund (1862-1938) was a Swedish suffragette, women's rights activist and politician.

Skoglund was graduated from Högre lärarinneseminariet in 1883. She was a teacher at the Åhlinska skolan in 1912-1933. In 1902-1903, she was one of the founders of the Country Association for Women's Suffrage. After the Country Association for Women's Suffrage had abandoned its political neutrality in 1911, when the conservative Moderate Party was the only party left opposed to women suffrage, Alexandra Skoglund was one of the right wing suffragists to create the Moderate Association for Women's Suffrage. She was the chairperson in the women's group of the Moderate Party in 1920-1938.
