In brief: Vaginitis
Well, women can get fungal infections of the vagina.
This is caused by a yeast called candida. Technically it is not "ringworm" but it is a fungal infection.

In brief: Outside
She can get ringworm on the outer skin but a yeast infection inside.
It is less common than in men. Women are more prone to yeast infections rather than ringworm in this area.
