La Flèche Wallonne Féminine is a major professional women's bicycle road race held in April each year in Wallonia, Belgium and is part of the UCI Women's World Tour.

The race began in 1998 as a women's road race and was held in conjunction with the men's race. From the following year onwards, the women's La Flèche Wallonne was a UCI Women's Road Cycling World Cup event. In 2016, the race became part of the new UCI Women's World Tour.
