The Women's Franchise League was a British organisation created by the suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst together with her husband Richard in 1889, fourteen years before the creation of the Women's Social and Political Union in 1903.

The organisation's main achievement was to secure the vote for women in local elections after the campaigning of its members.
