The New Directions' Girls are the group of girls within New Directions. Its final members include Marley, Kitty and Unique. Kurt was also sometimes considered as one of New Directions' girls and often tries to join their group in gender-spilt-mashups competitions. However, he is usually sent back to the boy's team by Will. Lauren is a past emblematic member of the club.

The New Directions' Girls are simply just the girls who were in New Directions. They are not a separate club, but they often separated from the boys for Girl Power numbers such as Halo/Walking on Sunshine, Express Yourself, and Start Me Up/Livin' on a Prayer. Tina, Rachel, and Mercedes were there since the founding of New Directions and Quinn, Santana and Brittany joined in Showmance. Lauren Zizes joined in Season Two, but left the club at the start of the third season.

Mercedes, Santana, and Brittany leave during the early part of Season Three to join The Troubletones with Shelby Corcoran as the director. Sugar, originally rejected from the New Directions, was the cause of Shelby's group. She later joins the New Directions when Mercedes, Santana, and Brittany rejoin. Rachel, Mercedes, Quinn, and Santana all graduated in Goodbye, therefore not being in Glee Club anymore. Brittany left New Directions in All or Nothing, after an early admission into MIT, graduating during her second senior year. Sugar has not been seen in the New Directions for unknown reasons after the same episode. Tina graduated in New Directions, while the club was disbanded due to budget concerns.

Others were a part of them in the past, including April Rhodes and Sunshine Corazon.
