There are three named, speaking female characters, but they are all in separate parts of the movie, and each one is not only viewed primarily as a sex or emotional partner for a man, but is generally mistreated in some way. In addition a fourth named female character is mistreated, but has no significant dialog. That said the three characters are substantial parts played by solid actresses who have good emotional notes, so it is not as misogynist as it may sound.
