The Congo women's national football team represents the Congo in international football.

Congo took part in the first African Championship in 1991, but withdrew before the tournament began. Congo did not compete at another championship until the 2004 tournament, where they beat Equatorial Guinea, but lost to Cameroon in qualification. During the qualification for the 2006 African Championship, they beat Togo over two legs, but did not turn up for the second qualifying round match against Ghana.

First in the 2008 Championship, Congo qualified by beating the Democratic Republic of Congo in the final qualifying round. Congo then went on to a group with Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon and Mali. They finished the group with three points after a win against Mali, and defeats to good Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon sides.

Despite good performances in 2008, they did not qualify for the 2010 African Championship. Therefore, they cannot qualify for the 2011 Germany World Cup.
