Arsenal Ladies Football Club are an English women's football club affiliated with Arsenal F.C. The club was founded in 1987 by Vic Akers, the kit manager for the Arsenal men's team, who today is still the club's general manager, and turned semi-professional in 2002. They play their home matches at Meadow Lodge, home of Southern League side Boreham Wood.

Arsenal are one of the most successful clubs in English women's football; the first team has won the FA Women's Premier League seven times, the FA Women's Cup six times, and the Women's League Cup eight times – this includes two domestic Trebles, in 1993 and 2001. Arsenal have also represented England three times in the UEFA Women's Cup, and have twice reached the semi-finals, in 2003 and 2005, which is the furthest any English women's club have ever got in the competition. The second time round, they lost narrowly to Sweden's Djurgården/Älvsjö 2-1 on aggregate.

Many of the club's players represent their international side; four of the first team, including England's biggest women's football star, Kelly Smith, were in the England squad for the 2005 European Championship. The club also boasts several Wales, Scotland and Republic of Ireland internationals.

The Ladies club is not part of Arsenal Football Club proper, but a separate club who enjoy affiliation. Nevertheless, ties between the two are close; Arsenal F.C. vice-chairman David Dein is president of Arsenal L.F.C., and the Ladies club are entitled to play at Highbury once a season.
