Yes, yes, yes! Imacann!
Possessive case does not necessarily show possession in this case. They're gloves which were made for women.

Present perfect passive sentence - nothing more, nothing less.
eg. I have written a book.(active)
A book has been written by me. (passive)
Has a book been written by me? (passive question)
Nothing more to it my friend.

A woman's gloves = one woman has a pair of gloves
Women's gloves = many women - many gloves.

Thar, allow me to congratulate you once again and if I may ask, are you a teacher? You have an amazing ability in using the English language.

Thank you ever so much Thar!!! You are indeed amazing. You took so much of your precious time to enclude such detail. Yes, I too agree with all that you have written but for a foreigner trying to learn English, it was a bit confusing. It all has to do with "time". I needed reassurance so as not to teach something which is wrong.

Direct - Reported Speech
The simple present becomes simple past
The simple past becomes past perfect - or so I knew till I saw that we can keep to the simple past.
Can someone help? What's correct?
eg. "I posted some letters," she said.
She said that she had posted some letters OR She said that she posted some letters.
Thank you!
Chrystalld'oh!

It's no good
It's not a good idea
Not is used after an auxilliary verb in order to make a negative statement.
In the first case it would mean "it's useless"
Hope this helps.
