You should be women,
And yet your beards forbid me to interpret
That you are so.
Banquo and Macbeth have just met the witches and they are about to give predictions for both of their futures. It tells us a little of how the witches look--they're supposed to be women but they have beards, which helps add to the confusion the witches cause. The confusion over thier gender will help us understand Lady Macbeth's comments later about being "unsexed": women are supposed to be pretty, dainty, and caring, but these women are not, they are evil (and that's what Lady Macbeth will ask to become later.)
