Kvindestemmeretsforeningen (KSF) was a Norwegian association for women suffrage, active from 1885 until 1913.

Kvindestemmeretsforeningen was founded in Kristiania by a group of ten women. Among its founders were Gina Krog, Anne Holsen, Anna Rogstad and Ragna Nielsen. It was chaired by Gina Krog from 1885 to 1897. A conflict among the members of the organization in 1897 led to the establishment of the National Association for Women's Suffrage (Landskvinnestemmerettsforeningen), chaired by Krog.[1] Anne Holsen chaired the Kvindestemmeretsforeningen from 1897 until her death in 1913.[2]
