Dagny Taggart is perhaps the strongest character in this film.

Kasey disagreed with the rating and said:
Yes, Dagny Taggart is a strong female character, but that isn't the point of this test. Did she actually have any conversations with any other women about a subject that wasn't a man? I can't really remember, but I don't recall there being any notable conversations. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

It does. Taggart talks to Rearden's wife about the Rearden metal bracelet Rearden gave her.

One could argue the man is implied (the bracelet is from Rearden), but strictly speaking, it does pass - the discussion is about the bracelet.
