Is a Woman is the sixth studio album by American rock band Lambchop. Its combination of austere arrangements and minimalist instrumentation marks a transition from former albums' elaborate and lavish sound.

In late 2010 Lambchop performed this album in its entirety, live on stage at a number of venues throughout Europe.
