You can say "Eu sou uma mulher" this is like saying in English "I am a woman" however it is more common to say "Sou uma mulher" it is like saying "I'm a woman".

Is the "eu" even necessary here? or just a formality, as in speaking every word?

You can just say "sou uma menina". Is equal to say "I am a girl", but in english you can't say "am a girl ", I think so. Lol

It is correct. The subject ( I - Eu; You - Você...) is opcional in portuguese. I'm Brazilian.

It didn't give the feminine of "seu" before giving this. How are we supposed to know the word "sou" if we've never seen it before?

"Sou" is the verb to be, "I am > Eu sou".

"Seu" is "your, its, his, her" when it refers to a masculine noun as in: "Is it your watch? > É seu esse relógio?"; "The dog play with its tail > O cachorro brinca com seu rabo"; "She likes her boyfriend > Ela gosta do seu namorado" and "The boy loves his new toy > O menino ama seu novo brinquedo"

Just to add, the feminine of "seu" is "sua", as in "He loves his girlfriend > Ele ama a sua namorada".

That's it! I hope it's helpful :D

All this time I've thought it was more like "AY-OW" and it's actually more like "AY-OH" so thanks!

Exactly! And "sou" sounds like a really bored person saying "so".
