Why indefinite 'femeie' and not the definite 'femeia' is used here while the definite article is present?

Hi, as far as I understand, the possessive article is "a/al" therefore you don't need another article. "A patra" means "the fourth" so then if you say femeia, you are saying "the fourth the woman", instead of the "the fourth woman".
