Womens' relationship and peoples' hearts

Found online: The womens' relationship began about nine months ago.

This is from a news story. Women is already plural, so it would be women's relationship, not womens' relationship (which spellcheck hates).

The women's relationship began about nine months ago.

Also online: A writing blog used the phrase "touch peoples’ hearts." This is similar to women's relationship — people and women are both plural — and it should be "touch people's hearts."
