Aside from the titular character, Red/Virginia, there are only two other named female characters: werewolf Lyra and Red's grandmother, who's only referred to as "Grandmother." The two greet each other when Red comes to visit, and have several conversations about Red's fiance Nathan. I'd say that this is a weak pass: although Grandmother Sullivan isn't given a first name (and isn't ever referred to by her last name - we assume that she shares a surname with her granddaughter, and imdb confirms this), this seems a deliberate homage to the original fairy tale. But I can also see the argument for rating this 2/3.
