There are at least four named women in the film - two girlfriends, a brothel owner, and a soldier - but few scenes that feature women talking to one another. Two sex workers discuss the warring Lion clan, but only one woman is a named character; Madam Blossom talks at her employees, but it's a monologue, not a discussion.

(This is based on the unrated/extended cut, so odds are the theatrical version doesn't pass either.)

Agreed. There are a number of named women, and one quasi-named woman:

Madame Blossom, Lady Silk, Chi Chi, Jane, and The Gemini Female.

However, none of them talk to one another, other than in a speech by Blossom to all her women.
