Caroline Graham Hansen (born 18 February 1995) is a Norwegian footballer who plays as a winger for Primera División club FC Barcelona and the Norway women's national team. She spent the second part of the 2013 Damallsvenskan season in Sweden, playing for Tyresö FF. Hansen represented Norway at youth international level, and made her debut for the senior team in 2011. In 2013, she was a part of the Norwegian team that won silver at UEFA Women's Euro 2013.
She transferred to Stabæk in August 2010, and made her Toppserien debut the same week, as a 73rd-minute substitute in the match against FK Donn. Hansen made an assist as Stabæk won 3-0. Stabæk won the league title later that year with a 3-0 home win over Trondheims-Ørn. She was a part of Stabæk's 2011 Norwegian Women's Cup winning team, who beat Røa on penalties after extra time. Hansen assisted Katrine Pedersen's equalizer during the extra time, but was the only Stabæk player to miss in the shoot out.
In August 2013 Hansen signed for Swedish Damallsvenskan champions Tyresö FF. In the second half of the season she started five of her seven league appearances and scored three goals. She also helped Tyresö qualify for the 2013-14 UEFA Women's Champions League quarter finals.
Hansen returned to Stabæk in January 2014 to complete her high school education, as she did not get the grades necessary to do so in Sweden. She continued to be monitored by several leading European clubs and intended to move away again after finishing school in June 2014. Realising that female footballers do not earn enough money to retire on, Hansen was planning for her career after football. At Stabæk she arranged to play Toppserien matches for the women's team while training with the male youth teams.
Hansen with Wolfsburg managed to reach the UEFA Women's Champions League Final twice in 2016 and 2018, which both lost to Lyon. In the 2016-17 and 2018-19 seasons, Wolfsburg was defeated in the quarterfinals against Lyon as well.
In May 2019, it was announced Hansen had signed with FC Barcelona on a two-year contract. Her first title with the club came on 24 August 2020, winning the Copa Cataluña. On 10 February 2020, Hansen beat Real Sociedad by 10-1 to archive the Supercopa de España title. On 6 May 2020, the Royal Spanish Football Federation announced the premature end of the league, naming Barcelona as league champions.
In 2011, 16-year-old Hansen was a part of the Norwegian under-19 team who finished as runners-up in the 2011 UEFA Women's U-19 Championship, after losing the final against Germany. Hansen was also included in the Norwegian squad for the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Japan, where the team reached the quarter-final.
She made her senior debut for Norway against Belgium in November 2011. In June 2012 Hansen scored her first senior international goal in an 11-0 rout of Bulgaria, a match in which she also assisted more than half of Norway's goals.
Hansen was named in Norway's squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013 by veteran coach Even Pellerud. Winger Hansen and fellow teenager Ada Hegerberg at centre forward were important players in the Norwegian team which reached the competition final. In the final at Friends Arena, Hansen won a 61st-minute penalty after drawing a foul from Saskia Bartusiak, but Germany's goalkeeper Nadine Angerer made her second penalty save of the match. Anja Mittag's goal gave the Germans their sixth successive title.
Hansen was named to the squad ahead of the UEFA Women's Euro 2017.
In 2019, it was announced that she would represent Norway in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. She helped the team reach the quarter-finals, where they were knocked out of the tournament by England.
