The Yugoslavia women's national basketball team (Serbo-Croatian: Ženska košarkaška reprezentacija Jugoslavije / Женска кошаркашка репрезентација Југославије) was the women's basketball side that represented Kingdom of Yugoslavia and Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1943 until 1992 in the international basketball matches, controlled by the Basketball Federation of Yugoslavia (KSJ).[1]

The team's first major tournament appearance was at the 1954 European Championship, hosted by Yugoslavia, in which it finished fourth. The team's biggest success in the following decades were bronze medal at the 1980 Moscow and silver medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympic games.

The team disappeared during the breakup of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s and its last major tournament appearance was at the 1991 European Championship in Israel, where they finished as runners-up, losing to Soviet Union in the final. Direct successor of SFRJ team is FR Yugoslavian women's national team.
