    women', woman's

    The famous book Chicken soup for the woman's soul.

    Should I use women's instead of woman's according to the grammar structure?

    Re: women', woman's

    You should use the exact title that the book uses.

    The series has chosen to use the singular.

    ... for the woman's soul.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
