Ritsuko and Misato argue about Misato's plan to capture the Angel. Later on, Asuka and Misato argue about Asuka wanting to do the combat on her own. Rei also asks Misato about more details about her plan.

Just a few examples in a movie that has many, many named female characters who have many conversations that are not about men.

Evangelion, both Neon Genesis and Rebuild, has very few strong MALE characters, after all. We only have Shinji, who is almost never strong in any way, especially in a traditional masculine way, Gendo, Fuyutsuki (that rarely speaks), Shinji two dumb friends and Kaworu. All the other strong characters are female.

Including Shinji's mother, who is badass.
