This movie has a los of named female characters. There are seven main characters, all female. And that's not counting the three female villains.

Almost all dialogs are about magic, music and the past of the female characters. There is just one short conversation about a boy.

This movie passes the three points of the test.

The show and movie is actually really excellent. It teaches young girls that they don't need a man, they don't need a "love interest", they don't need to change themselves to fit in.
Again and again, they stress the importance of being kind, being a good friend, and most importantly, being yourself.
Young girls are more vulnerable in the messages they receive, especially when they reach the prime ages between 10 and 13.

The movie has not one, not two but seven brave young women, taking on the challenges that face their school, and saving the world.

Yes, this definitely passes the test and it has a good message.

I'm wondering, does it pass the test but for male characters instead of female?

Aren't the mane six all teenagers? Technically, a female teenager is not a woman so the conversations involving teenage characters wouldn't count.
