A more correct rule is to check whether "quelles" qualifies a noun:
- Which women -> quelles
- Which (ones) do you like -> lesquelles
Very often, you do not need to use "one" or "ones". But notice that the latter case is the only one where it is possible to use it, because it replaces the implicit noun. You cannot say "which ones women".
The meaning of our sentence is basically "which women of these women", which can be simplified to "which ones of these women", and in this case you can also just say "which of these women". So you can think of "les" in "lesquelles" as replacing "women", in the same way as "ones" does in "which ones". But in French it always needs to be there.
