why would you use vah instead of yah here?

You can use both. They would both mean "She is a woman".

However, be careful as yah is only used when the person is close to you or you're pointing at him (her, in this case). So in most cases, we end up using vah more.

In my Hindi class I learned that because someone you are writing about is never right there (on the page I suppose), you always use the far versions of he/she/it/they (वह/वे). My teacher always told us you really only use यह in speaking.
