Why doesn't the second امْرَأة start with اِ ?

It's because of the وَ in front of the word. The ا in امرأة doesn't have any sound on it's own. It takes the sound of the word before it.

The ا letter in the word امرأة is called "Hamazt Alwasl" and it shouldn't be written without a kasra under it.

The a in the first an should be Capital.
