Grammar

In my major just have little women – In my major we just have a few women
— Because “women” are countable.

In my major we have a few women vs. In my major we only have a few women
— The first part means that I want to tell you that there ARE some women (positive; you thought that there weren’t women in the program)
— The second part means that I want to tell you that there are NOT very many women (negative; this is a small number)

I always can’t understand that – I can never understand it
— Always + not = never
