There are two conversations between Hope and her mother Janet.

One is when she has taken over Scott’s body and is telling Hank and Hope about how they got the equation wrong but she does single out Hope about how much she is clever and that she misses her.

Earlier in the movie, when they have to leave Hope and go stop a missile, Janet tells Hope that it is just going to be a boring business trip that will put her to sleep.

Though the 2 scenes that Feverwood mentioned should count, they are arguably dubious since the first one involves a male that speaks for Janet and the second involves one of the characters as a child (not a woman); however, there is a scene between Ava and Janet that passes completely in which they discuss Ava's painful situation and Janet helps her.

The conversation between Janet and Hope when Hope is a child is completely compliant because the test is about female characters, their age doesn't stop them from being people.

This one should count, it is a women using a man as a medium. It is not a man translating (adding and removing) what a women want to say. you can change Scott for a phone, and it pass the test.
