Marie Borge Refsum (born 20 March 1927) is a Norwegian politician, who served as a member of the Conservative Party.

She served as a deputy representative to the Norwegian Parliament from Akershus during the term 1973–1977.[1]

On the local level, she was a member of the executive committee of Asker municipal council, having been elected in the so-called "women's coup" where four women (Tove Billington Bye, Berit Ås, Marie Borge Refsum and Kari Bjerke Andreassen) led a successful campaign to get women elected to the municipal council.[2]

Refsum is the grandmother of researcher Alexander Refsum Jensenius.
