I don't think "a" has been mentioned before... I feel a bit cheated by this.

I put in "Nosotros no tocamos las mujeres" but it considered it as incorrect, can anyone tell me why?

the "las" would refer to a specific group of women, not the cessation of women in general.

I guess because it's not "the women" but I'm not completely sure

this phrase looks like "we, the women, do not touch (others)". shouldn't it be "no tocamos a las mujeres"?

So '(nosotros) tocamos mujeres' and '(nosotros) tocamos a las mujeeres' are both correct, but '(nosotros) tocamos las mujeres' is not? Please can someone explain this?
