    Default every women

    Hi!
    Is it ok if i use 'every women' ?

    I saw a sentence , '...boys learn at an early age to expect every women they meet to look after them.'

    As far as i know 'every' should modify a singular noun.
    i wonder if the sentence above is grammatically correct or not.

    waiting for your kind help.
    thankyou.

    No, you're right; it should be 'every woman'.
