Women's events at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships were first held at the 1934 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, the 10th edition of the Championships. Only the All-Around and Team events were held. At the 1950 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, the 12th edition of the Championships, the other apparatus events were added.

The women's team event was not held in 1992, 1993, 1996, 2002, 2005, and 2009. In 1994, a separate team championships were held, apart from the individual events's championships. This was the only year such a separation was made.

Three medals are awarded: gold for first place, silver for second place, and bronze for third place. Tie breakers have not been used in every year. In the event of a tie between two gymnasts, both names are listed, and the following position (second for a tie for first, third for a tie for second) is left empty because a medal was not awarded for that position. If three gymnastics tied for a position, the following two positions are left empty.
