    Re: Womens or Women's ?

    Welcome to the forum.

    None of your sentences are correct. The first two are grammatically incorrect. The third has errors in capitalisation. Note that we only capitalise the first word of a sentence, the word "I" and proper nouns. Try to write number 3 again.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And don't use a question mark at the end of #3. It isn't a question- it's a statement. If you want to make it a question, it should be Are women smarter than men?

    Women's are smarter then men.

    Women are smarter than men. #3, but without the extra capital letters.
