WAFL Women's (WAFLW) is an Australian rules football league based in Perth, Western Australia. The WAFLW is the premier women's football competition in Western Australia and is contested by five clubs owned and operated by clubs in the men's West Australian Football League (WAFL).
The league was established in 2018 by the West Australian Football Commission and West Australian Women's Football League, the latter having been the leading body and league for women's football in the state from 1987 to 2018. The league runs from May to September, running concurrently with the WAFL and is the second primary women's football competition for West Australian footballers underneath the semi-professional AFL Women's competition.
Five of the ten WAFL men's clubs fielded teams in the inaugural 2019 season. Neither of the West Australian AFLW teams (Fremantle and West Coast) field teams in the league, meaning some of their contracted players play for one of the WAFLW clubs.
