The Argentina women's national football team represents Argentina in international women's football. Since there is no professional league in Argentina, almost all its members are amateur players.

Women's football in Argentina remains largely in the shadow of the men in terms of play development and fan support; in women's sports in Argentina, field hockey and volleyball are also more popular, both with professional leagues.

The Argentina v Brazil football rivalry in women's football cannot be compared to that of men given the big differences between both countries, with Brazil having a competitive professional women's league. Nevertheless, Argentina follows Brazil in the CONMEBOL standings.

On November 26, 2006, in the finals of the 2006 Sudamericano Femenino, Argentina beat Brazil (2–0) to take the title.

The team returned to play in the 2014 ODESUR South American Games, with new coach Luis Nicosia, losing 1-0 the opening match against Chile, winning against Bolivia 4-0 and advancing to the Semi Finals in where they won in against their rivals Brazil in penalties after a 0-0 draw. At the final, they win the gold medal by a 2-1 victory against Chile, making Argentina women's team won another gold medal after many years.
