Original Post
1. "A stone's throw" is generally treated as an idiom. Without the preceding "a", "stone's throw" is not acceptable. Literally it means the distance that one gets by throwing a stone. Figuratively, it means "a very short distance away". So the expression is usually in the singular.
2. "Men's plans" is already plural possessive.
3. "It's place" is not a possessive. "'s" here is "is". ITS possessive is "its place". The plural is "their place(s)".
4. The right singular is "a woman's plans". The plural is "women's plans".
