The FA Women's Premier League National Division is at the top of the English women's football league pyramid. Below it are simultaneously the Northern and Southern divisions. The league is played on a home and away basis, with each team playing each other twice, and points being awarded in the standard football format.

It is the women's football counterpart to the FA Premier League, although the women's league is not fully professional. The terms "Women's Premiership" and "Ladies Premiership" thus generally refer to the National Division alone. Its clubs are semi-professional affiliates of their male Premiership and Football League counterparts.

Premiership teams also compete in the FA Women's Cup and the Premier League Cup, and the Premiership winner competes against the FA Cup winner for the FA Women's Community Shield. Premiership winners also get a chance to compete in the UEFA Women's Cup as well.

For the 2006-07 season, the number of competing teams was increased from 10 to 12, with the promotion of the Northern (Blackburn Rovers) and Southern (Cardiff City) champions and no relegations despite test matches being played.
