Womenswold is a village and civil parish centred 7 miles (11 km) south-east of Canterbury, Kent, England, 1 mile to the east of the A2 road. The parish (population 286 in 2011 census) consists of three hamlets: Womenswold, Woolage Village and Woolage Green. (The latter two are redirected here.)

Historically, Womenswold has been recorded with various spellings, including Wymynswold and Wimlingswold. A further one may be Wymelyngewolde.

The church of St. Margaret of Antioch covers all three hamlets. A small mediaeval building without any side aisles, it is part of the Barham Downs group of churches.
