Why do some nutritionists say that exercise is not an effective weight loss modality in women? Is it true?

My own experience shows that weight loss with exercise does not readily occur in women unless accompanied by caloric restriction.

The excess caloric expenditure which results from physical activity should lead to weight loss if caloric expenditure at other times remains constant. Unfortunately, while there is good evidence for such an effect in men, there is little if any evidence for a similar effect in women.

As far as I know the role of exercise in maintaining resting metabolic rate while dieting has only marginal support. Nevertheless, regular exercise in women has many beneficial effects on lipids, glucose homeostasis and bone metabolism even if weight loss does not occur.
