You should use woman's (if you are referring to one); women's (if you are referring to two or more).

Womans is not a word.


Possessives are formed by adding apostrophe + s ('s) to a word --> woman's or women's.


Plurals are generally formed by adding only s (or es) to a word. However, women is an irregular plural. Other irregular plural include man --> men, child --> children.
