Sarah Conner is the only main female character. She doesn't not interact with other females.

Doesn't she say something to Kyle's mother when they're escaping down the stairwell? It doesn't change the rating, but it is an interaction with another female.

Daniel disagreed with the rating and said:
I remember a brief scene were Kyle's mother talks to Sarah, in the police station scene in the stairs, and she answers. Out of it I don't remember any other interaction, but it certainly passes.

Sarah Connor isn't the only named female character. There's at least a second one named Detective Cheung. She doesn't talk much but she's there and she's named.

Eloise disagreed with the rating and said:
There are two named female characters - Sarah and Detective Cheung. They're in the same room - the hospital room after Sarah has her stitches put in.

There is an incredibly brief verbal interaction, Cheung makes comments about Sarah being so far off grid, Sarah makes a snarky retort. But it's an interrogation and not a conversation and there isn't another reply before the male cop speaks to Reese.

So it's a 1 out of 3 not a 0 out of 3 rating.
