Detail : John's twelfth solo single.
Just after "Starting Over" had been released as a single, John insisted that "Woman" be issued as the follow-up.

Going to number 1 in the U.K. charts meant that John had had a hat-trick of chart-toppers, after "Starting Over" and "Imagine" had done the same.

At the "Double Fantasy" sessions, as one can hear on many bootlegs, John explained the song to his fellow musicians as being,
"Early Motown/Beatles 1964. It's for your mother, or your sister, anyone of the female race."
John certainly thought of "Woman" as being the album's "Beatle track".

This was released in a picture sleeve, and also came as a cassette single (pictured below).
The cassette was housed in a yellow cardboard box with the same cover photo.
