"Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai" (女が目立って なぜイケナイ?, "Why Can't Women Stand Out?") is the 42nd single by Hello! Project unit Morning Musume. The single was released on February 10, 2010 with three limited edition releases as well as the normal edition– "A", "B" and "C"– all of which contained a different DVD. All four editions (including normal) also contained a special card with a serial number on it, which was used in an event draw.[1] The Single V was released on February 24, 2010.[2] This is also the group's first single as an eight-member unit, since the graduation of seventh generation member Koharu Kusumi in late 2009.

The theme of the title track is a comparison between women and flowers.[3]
