This is an iffy one. The only time Anna and Eva (the only significant/named women) converse onscreen is in the dinner scene with Andreas and Elis. The conversation involves all of them, and while the women do ask each other questions directly one or two times, the way they answer is obviously directed at everyone at the table. It didn't feel like a woman-to-woman conversation, so I rated it thus, though I have some doubts.
