The tallest woman living is Rumeysa Gelgi (Turkey, b. 1 January 1997), who measures 215.16 cm (7 ft 0.7 in), as of 23 May 2021.


Rumeysa, who previously held the record for tallest teenager living (female), was measured in Safranbolu, Turkey. She says achieving a Guinness World Records title has "motivated me to pursue my goals and have a more confident outlook in life" and hopes that this record will help to empower good causes and raise awareness of overgrowth syndromes such as hers.
