2 women only

Men are right handed
There are minimum 3 right handed people- must be 3 men
Women are left handed
Men have to sit to left from women, whoever sits to the right from women must be left handed but must have a man sitting to the right, this cannot be a woman, so this must be a left handed man
Now we have 3 right handed men + 1 left handed man sitting next to women. If total is 6 people, we will have 6-4= 2 women only
