The CMLL World Women's Championship (Campeonato Mundial Femenil de CMLL in Spanish) is the top female professional wrestling championship promoted by the Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). The championship has exisisted since 1992 and is one of two women's championships currently recognized by CMLL; the other is the Mexican National Women's Championship. Being a professional wrestling championship it is not won legitimately; it is instead won via a scripted ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline.

Bull Nakano became the first CMLL World Women's Champion after winning a 12-woman battle royal to win the title on June 12, 1992. La Amapola is the current CMLL World Women's Champion, having defeated Lady Apache on November 16, 2007. This is La Amapola's first reign with the title; she is the 12th overall champion and the 10th person to hold the championship. Amapola holds the record for the longest reign with 3,538 days, while the 2nd longest is held by Reina Jubuki, at 828 days. Lady Apache has the most reigns of any wrestler, with three; she also has had the shortest title reign, at 90 days.
