Its not the woman protagonist that makes this movie pass the test, but the conflict between the two alien females, Sola and Sarkoja.

Actually, I do remember the two female protagonists sharing an -extremely- brief exchange. One asks the other where the temple is or something like that, she responds that it's forbidden or something, there's some minor reply. It passes but only barely. The two characters aren't even clearly on screen when the short exchange takes place, if I recall correctly.

Anastasia disagreed with the rating and said:
It doesn't pass.
Sola and Sarkoja are talking (briefly) about a man - Tars Tarkas.
While the talk before the temple scene is in mixed company and one minor answer about the temple's whereabouts isn't a 'talk'.

Another conversation between two women was when John, Dejah and Sola were riding for the River Issis. Sola says one line to Dejah, and Dejah answers, although it is unclear whether she is speaking to Sola or John. If it passes, it's a very weak pass.

In the deleted scenes it passes without question, due to a conversation between Dejah and Sola. Without that scene though it's a bit difficult.
