4. Suffrage for minorities and women is enshrined in the Constitution, so no, they can't do that.

But if that portion of the VRA is struck down, it becomes easier for southern states to gerrymander their districts to effectively disenfranchise large blocs of minorities. I think it's probably impossible to gerrymander to disenfranchise women specifically.
