The 1957 FIBA World Championship for Women was the second FIBA World Championship for Women basketball championship held by FIBA. It was held in Brazil between 13 October and 26 October 1957. Twelve national teams entered the event under the auspices of FIBA, the sport's governing body. The city of Rio de Janeiro hosted the tournament. The United States won its second title after finishing in first place in the second round.
