There are multiple named female characters - obviously Michelle Obama but also a few others who's name escapes me. They don't talk much, but they mostly talk about Barack.

I mean...the movie *is* about their first date anyway...

Surely women speaking at a public meeting (at which the attendance is at least a substantial fraction women) qualifies as speaking to each other. It certainly meets the spirit of a rule that is aimed at giving representation to women.

Should be at least 2/3. Michelle and her mother talk as she's getting ready, as do the named female attendees at the community meeting (about one's son being on a ship).
