Though it has more than one named female character, they never interact, and indeed are discarded very quickly. Once one is introduced, you know you won't see the others again.

Well that- and the fact that it has Bond date rape Pussy Galore.

I agree with the rating: this movie fails on principle, especially the "sex" scene which involves an explicit lack of consent. However, Pussy Galore's Flying Circus, named by their position on the flying team, does talk to each other as Operation Grand Slam is being executed, and Pussy Galore herself talks to her pilots about their Flying Skills. It isn't much, but it's a moment that passes the test within a film that fails as a whole. Which is an interesting dynamic to consider.
