The Asian Women's Volleyball Cup, so-called the AVC Cup for Women is an international volleyball competition in Asia and Oceania contested by the senior women's national teams of the members of Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC), the sport's continent governing body. The tournaments have been awarded every two years since 2008. The current champion is China, which won its fifth title at the 2018 tournament.

The six editions of the tournaments have been won by two different national teams. China have won five times. The other Asian Volleyball Cup winner is Thailand with one title.

The 2018 Asian Women's Volleyball Cup took place in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

This event should not be confused with the other, more prestigious, continental competition for Asian national volleyball teams, the Asian Volleyball Championship.
