Depends on how you pronounce the "r". It is possible with 
the American pronunciation.

No, you got it wrong! It's pronounced "women" with the "o" 
like the "oul" in could, would or should, not "i", and the "e" 
as in men, again not a "i". This is from the MidWest 
pronunciation, which is considered the best American 
pronunciation. Of course you could be running into a 
bunch of dialectal mispronunciations, like those guys from 
Noo Yauk or Baastin.    ....    ;-)
