Dubious because there's only one named female character (Iiris, the protagonist). Then again, the entire movie has maybe two named characters so maybe it doesn't matter in this case.

There's at least one, very brief (in Kaurismäki fashion) exchange of words between Iiris and her female workmate about Iiris' pregnancy.
