"Womanhood" is a 1978 single written by Bobby Braddock and recorded by Tammy Wynette. In Braddock's 2015 memoir, A Life on Nashville's Music Row, he described it as "a song about a girl having a tearful talk with God about losing her virginity." Braddock initially discarded the song after writing it but was convinced by his fiancée to play it for his music publisher.[1]

It was released in 1978 as the second single from her album Womanhood. The song peaked at number 3 and was her last to reach the top five of Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.
