Woman's Gotta Have It is the second album by Cornershop, released in 1995.

The album's style is a blend of indie rock with Indian music. Reviewing the album on AllMusic, Denise Sullivan called the style "Hindi-Pop".

Wog and the opening track 6 A.M. Jullandar Shere, sung in Punjabi, were released as singles. A video for the latter was sometimes played on MTV Europe's alternative music slots. The album ends with 7:20 A.M. Jullandar Shere, another version of the opening song, and a hidden track.

The song My Dancing Days Are Done is performed in French (mes jours de bal perdus) by the guest singers Parsley and Sasha Andres.
