NEVER use "womens".
Women is the plural of woman , so there cannot be a plural of women.
However, you will see this simple truth ignored everywhere you look:
Womens Clothing Department
Womens Restroom, Mens Restroom (signs on doors that say WOMENS and MENS) — wrong!!!
Womens Issues, Womens Lib, etc.
Do not let these mistakes that other people make confuse or distract you. They are WRONG. Usually these errors occur because people never learned the difference between plurals and possessives.
Woman is singular. Man is singular.
Women is plural. Men is plural.
Woman's is a singular possessive. Man's is a singular possessive.
Women's is a plural possessive. Men's is a plural possessive.
Womens is not a word. Mens is not a word.
Learn the difference well, and don't believe what you see online or on signs! A million people might get this wrong; that does not make them right.
