Victor said:
Snow White and Ravenna are the two characters most central to the plot. The two converse with one another directly on three occasions: the first is before Ravenna marries Snow White's father, the second is when Ravenna disguises herself as William, and the third is during their final confrontation. All of these conversations include discussion of men, but all also include other subjects.

The movie passes. Ravenna and Snow White talk when she is young about her mother and Ravenna's beauty. That conversation has nothing to do with men. They never come up.

Snow White also speaks with Ravenna's victim, Greta, about her fate and Snow's identity as the princess. Greta later tells Snow to flee without her.

Snow also speaks with the water village woman's daughter, who is named Lily, about dressing her doll. The daughter's name is stated by the mother during the raid.

Snow and Ravenna also have other conversations, but these ones contain men in their topics, though they are not the only subject. Ravenna discusses her power with Snow and their destinies. Her father is only mentioned initially as a taunt when Snow attacks her.

I'd also like to add that the good queen (Snow's mother) talks to her daughter and that the evil queen (Snow's stepmother) talks to Greta (victim we see by herself) although it is mostly one-sided. Doesn't the daughter of the scarred woman talk in their village to her mother. A fourth test should be: does the total time of all conversations add up to at least one minute or more.
