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".

The opening track 6am Jullandar Shere, sung in Punjabi, as well as Wog were released as singles. A video for the former was sometimes played on MTV Europe's alternative music slots. The album ends with "7:20am 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.
