Majority of the women don't or doesn't betray their partner. What should be used here "do" or "doesn't"?

    Tufguy, please note that "majority" is a singular countable noun and therefore must be qualified by a determiner.
    The majority of the women is a noun phrase
    We know that if we were to change "the majority of women" to a pronoun, the pronoun would be "they" because "the majority of women" is a plural concept similar to "a lot of women".
