EZ said:
There are six named female characters (including the nurse and the doctor, and a cameo by Sigourney Weaver as herself). However, at no point do they communicate with each other, and their roles are all significantly smaller, supporting at best, and in service to the male leads.

I disagree with the rating; the film does pass the test in one of the earlier scenes. It's when Jean and Eliza compliment each other's clothing.

Dwijiri disagreed with the rating and said:
The film does pass although the conversations between the women are brief and scattered throughout the film. Jean and Maureen talk to Eliza about her college education and Jean talks to Maureen about her job at Xerox. Dr. Soni and Pam discuss Maureen's drinking.
