There are two parts to this question:
1. Can an organization run only by women be named Women Aid Organization, or should it be called Women's Aid Organization? Please also explain why.
2. If using the word 'women' or "women's" is confusing in this case [as it could give the impression that the organization works for women only], is it preferable, and correct, to replace it with a word such as 'Female Aid ...' or 'All-Women Aid ...' for clarity? If none of the above is right, could you please suggest a word that would work best and give the most clarity?
In this case I would specifically go with Women's Aid Organization. Note, however, that in naming an organization, marketing rather than grammar usually determines your exact wording.
Also, I feel all of your options speak more of the targeted aid group (as in, an organization for providing aid TO women) rather than saying anything about the management. If you really want to stress that, a better choice may be something like "Women Providing Aid".
