|Wikimedia Commons has media related to Female sportspeople.|
|This is a non-diffusing subcategory of Category:Sportspeople.|
It includes sportspeople that can also be found in the parent category, or in diffusing subcategories of the parent.
This category exists only as a container category for other categories of sportswomen. Articles on individual women should not be added directly to this category, but may be added to an appropriate sub-category if it exists.
Please note that categorisation by gender is acceptable in Wikipedia only in limited circumstances which are set out in Wikipedia:Categorization/Gender, race and sexuality. New categories by gender may be deleted if they do not meet the tests set out in that guideline.
