Andrea Villareal (1881 – 1963) was a Mexican revolutionary, journalist and feminist. She was often referred to in the press as the Mexican Joan of Arc.

She gave her vocal support to the liberal-radical Partido Liberal Mexicano (PLM) opposing the dictatorship of President Porfirio Díaz (1876–1911), during the Mexican Revolution of 1910–1917.

She was originally from Nuevo León, Mexico, but was forced to flee with her sister Teresa to Texas where she published two newspapers from exile in San Antonio, the feminist newspaper La Mujer Moderna (The Modern Woman, 1910) and the revolutionary El Obrero (The Worker).

She died in San Antonio.
