Anna Borysivna Sharyhina (born c.1978) is a Ukrainian activist who fights for the rights of women and the LBGT community. She is one of the founders of the Sphere Women's Association, a lesbian feminist organisation from Kharkiv, and of the NGO Kyiv Pride, the organizing committee of the Pride Parade in Kiev.

Sharyhina and her partner, Vira Chemygina, have been part of the Ukrainian LBGT community and lesbian organizations for years. They organized Kiev's first walks for equality. The second walk for equality in Kiev was held in 2015. Police officers and public figurs supported the walk. However, the walk only lasted for 15 minutes because of the violence against the marchers. Ten people, including police officers guarding the event, were injured.
