    (when (and word-at-point
               (test-completion word-at-point woman-topic-all-completions))
    It's more verbose, but brings across the purpose somewhat better.

Why don't we let `test-completion' return the completion (string) argument,
whenever the return value is non-nil?

This would then be simply:
 (and word-at-point
      (test-completion word-at-point woman-topic-all-completions))

This is a common use case - most uses of `test-completion' will want to use
the string, but only if it is a completion. And a return value of `t' is not
particularly useful.
