"The eating woman" does not sound natural. We need to use a relative clause here: "The woman who eats stands up"

I disagree. Eating is a present participle describing the woman. It's not any different than saying "The flying car sped past the skyscraper."

On the other hand, your sentence with the relative clause is certainly also fine.
