"The Woman in Me (Needs the Man in You)" is the title of a song co-written and recorded by Canadian country music singer Shania Twain. It was released in August 1995 as the third single and title track from her 1995 album The Woman in Me. The song was written by Mutt Lange and Twain. The song became Twain's third top-twenty hit at country radio. It was released to radio in August 1995, following the success of her previous single "Any Man of Mine". Despite not being able to crack the top-ten "The Woman in Me" was still included in Twain's 2004 Greatest Hits package.
Billboard magazine gave the single a mixed review, saying "she seems to gain some momentum on the chorus, but on the verses it seems like she doesn't quite get a vocal grasp on this song."
The music video for "The Woman in Me" was shot in Cairo and Saqqara, Egypt and directed by Markus Blunder. It was filmed during the first week of July 1995 and released on August 9, 1995.

She is also shown walking around through ancient ruins, revealing her famous navel. In 1996 the video won the Favorite Video of the Year award at the Golden Pick Awards. The video is available on Twain's DVD The Platinum Collection.
