I (like) love women (girls).


Explanation:
This is just basic stuff, the other two sentences are "I like strawberries" and "I like to sing," respectively.

"I like women"


Explanation:
I would not use the word "love" because it is too strong a word in this case. The writing talks about different things a person likes, such as strawberries, singing, etc. "les femmes" is part of the list and is therefore put on the same footing as the rest, so the same word "like" applies to it.

You WOULD indeed use the word "love" for all these things if the writing said "j'adore les fraises, j'adore chanter, j'adore les femmes". But in our case, stay with "like"!

I love women


Explanation:
I beg to differ with Dauphine (hello Louise) as in context, the first thing which springs to mind here are things you can buy with "I love New York" on or whatever. Stick with the "love" rather than "like". Up to you to decide which best suits the context.
