The Copa América Femenina (previously the Campeonato Sudamericano de Fútbol Femenino, shortened Sudamericano Femenino) is the main competition in women's association football between national teams of the CONMEBOL.

It was first held in 1991. In the first two editions of the tournament only one team (the champion) qualified for the FIFA Women's World Cup. In the third edition the champions qualified automatically, while the runner-up of the tournament faced a team from the CONCACAF in a play-off match to reach the World Cup. In the fourth edition two automatic spots were given for the 2003 World Cup: to the champions and the second placed team respectively, a situation remaining for the 2007 and 2011 edition.

There are also Under-20 and Under-17 Copa América Femenina versions.
