What's a woman’s woman? Is it like an overly girly girl?

From the online Oxford dictionary:

"A woman whose qualities are appreciated by women, a woman who is popular with other women."

No, in this context it just means the speaker (thinker, writer) feels more comfortable with other women and the ways women tend to talk and relate to one another. She finds it easier to talk about things, laugh at jokes, discuss feelings, problems, or ideas with other women than with men. In this case it has nothing to do with the quasi-sexual femininity, girly-girl traits.
