Ema Derossi-Bjelajac (sometimes rendered Derosi-Bjelajac; 3 May 1926) is a Croatian politician. She served as the President of the Presidency of the Socialist Republic of Croatia from 1985 until 1986 and the President of the Executive Council of the Socialist Republic of Croatia at the same time. She was the first woman to hold a title equivalent to a head of state, as well as the second woman (after Savka Dabčević-Kučar) to hold a post equivalent to a head of government, in modern day Croatia.
