AFC Wimbledon Ladies are a women's football team from London. The team currently competes in the FA Women's National League Division One South East.

The club was founded after the ladies team representing Wimbledon F.C. decided to transfer to AFC Wimbledon, after the old club's relocation. The ladies team of Fulham F.C., known as Friends of Fulham, started its bonds with the name Wimbledon, when they voted yes on the decision to transfer to Wimbledon F.C., as a new entity. The AFC Wimbledon Ladies are now owned by The Dons Trust. On Sunday 24th October, AFC Wimbledon beat Walton Casuals 7-1 in the FA Cup 3rd Round Qualifying match meaning they qualify for the 1st Round where they will face Millwall Lionesses L.F.C..

From 2003 to 2006 it was one of the few Women's Premier League sides not to be affiliated with a club from the male Premiership or Football League.
