Woman for instance embraced by a man (5)


I believe the answer is:


'woman' is the definition.

'for instance embraced by a man' is the wordplay.
'for instance' becomes 'eg' (short for 'exempli gratia', 'for example' in Latin).
'embraced by' indicates putting letters inside.
'eg' going within 'man' is 'MEGAN'.

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
