Other covers of this song include Bette Midler on her Peggy Lee tribute album, season 6 of American Idol
, an episode of the TV series Ally McBeal
, and The Muppet Show
, in a duet between Miss Piggy and guest star Raquel Welch.Maria Muldaur
recorded a popular version of the song in 1965, delivering a more tender vocal that Mike Stoller said "wasn't anything like Peggy but it was marvelous." Muldaur said of this song in her 1974 interview with Rolling Stone
: "I relate to a song musically, not politically. I think 'I'm A Woman' is a positive statement of feminine self-reliance. S--t, I sewed all my own clothes and Geoff's shirts when we were with the Jug Band. For years, I guess, I tried to live up to the image of the woman in that song. Now I think I've achieved that and gone beyond it. Now I sing it more as a proclamation, a boast, not a wish or a dream. Actually, I am a little uncomfortable with that line 'I can make a man out of you.' I keep hoping I'll flash on a new line to take its place."
