The women's 10 metre platform, also reported as high diving, was one of four diving events on the diving at the 1932 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was actually held from both 10 metre and 5 metre platforms. Divers performed a total of four compulsory dives – running plain header forward, standing backward spring and forward dive with pike (10 metre), standing forward plain header, running forward plain header (5 metre). The competition was held on Friday August 12, 1932.

Seven divers from five nations competed.


Since there were only seven entries, instead of groups, a direct final was contested.
