There's one main female character (Esther, played by Judy Garland) and a couple of minor ones; but none of the ones with names talk to each other.

Esther exchanges one line with an unnamed landlady who's off-screen, and it's about a guy who called and left a phone message. All of Esther's friends and fellow musicians are male; so are the producers managing her career.

(Judy Garland is absolutely terrific in this movie - so is James Mason. I recommend it.)
