Judith Eleanor "Judi" Moylan AO (born 24 February 1944, Perth, Western Australia), an Australian politician, was a Liberal member of the Australian House of Representatives from March 1993 to August 2013, representing the Division of Pearce, Western Australia.

Moylan was born in the Perth suburb of Guildford and educated at Perth Technical College. She was an education officer and lecturer, a real estate agent and company director before entering politics. She was President of the Midland and Districts Chamber of Commerce 1990–91.

Moylan was a member of the Opposition Shadow Ministry 1994–96 and was Minister for Family Services and Minister assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women from 1996 to 1998. In June 2005 she joined a backbench revolt led by Liberal colleague Petro Georgiou in an attempt to end the system of mandatory detention in Australia of asylum seekers.

Moylan was a leading member of the Liberal Party's "small-l liberal" wing, which made her stand out in an increasingly conservative party. On 28 July 2011, she announced she would stand down at the next federal election.
