Joséphine Leroux (23 January 1747 – 23 October 1794), born Anne-Joseph Leroux, was a French Ursuline nun. She was born in Cambrai, France. She became an Ursuline in Valenciennes, taking the name Joséphine. She fled to Mons, Hainaut when the monasteries and convents were suppressed during the French Revolution, but returned to Valenciennes in 1793. In 1794, she and several other nuns were arrested there for the crime of faith and was guillotined with ten other nuns whose names are not known. She is beatified in the Roman Catholic Church.
