The content analysis of the documentary materials of the IPF Women's Powerlifting World Championships over the past forty years, starting with the first World Championship (1980), allowed us to determine some of its features. The research allowed us to identify 3 stages of the development of the world women's powerlifting, each of which has its own characteristic features. According to the results of the research, the most popular women's weight categories of the world women's powerlifting and the age characteristics of the competition leaders of different years were determined.
