Why is duo changed into duae feminiae, but tres remains unchanged?

Tres actually also changes, but only for the neuter: "tria". Unus, duo and tres are the only numerals that change.

There are or are there...both should be correct.

No, both should not be correct. 'There are three women" is a statement, while "Are there three women?" Is a question.

Is "Aren't there three women ?" also a correct translation ? If not, how would that be said in Latin ?

If the question is "Suntne tres feminae?", then what is the answer?

"Ita. Tres feminae sunt"?
