As with the book, there are only two female character—one of them very minor, and the other more major. The major character has been considerably cut down from her role in the book, and doesn't have much plot function. The two characters never meet.

On the upside, a single female was in an environment dominated completely by males. I was thinking there might be some sort of sexual aggression, but there wasn't.

Thomas disagreed with the rating and said:
The only two characters I can think of are Teresa and the white lady, and as best as I can remember the white lady doesn't have a name.

Without mayor spoilers, in the whole book series are only two important female characters: One is Teresa and the other one apears for the first time at the second book, The Scorch Trials. Neither both of them share much between each other, just know her existence.

In this movie there is not only a female character. Within the flashbacks of Teresa's and Thomas' past you can see that they talk with different scientists. And Ava Paige talks with the council at the end and there are women in that council. I guess it depends on the viewpoint, but (warning: Spoiler) the lack of females in this movie (or book) will be important in the following ones.

Yes, it diesn't pass (or even close) but it is because of a significant part of the plot rather than ignorance.
