"Woman" is a single by John Lennon from his 1980 album Double Fantasy. Written by Lennon: it is an ode to his wife Yoko Ono, which is introduced by Lennon whispering, "For the other half of the sky ...", a paraphrase of a Chinese proverb, one used by Mao Zedong.

In an interview for Rolling Stone magazine on December 5, 1980, Lennon said that "Woman" was a "grown-up version" of the song "Girl".

"Woman" was the second single released from the Double Fantasy album, and the first Lennon single issued after his death on December 8, 1980. The B-side of the single is Ono's song "Beautiful Boys". The single debuted at #3 in the UK, then moving to #2 and finally reaching #1, where it spent two weeks, knocking off the top spot his own re-released "Imagine". In the US the single spent three weeks at #2. The single was also a commercial success in New Zealand where it spent 5 weeks at #1.
