There are several women in the film. The cast is listed on IMDb, but apart from Elizabeth Debicki's Kat and Dimple Kapadia's Priya, I don't think any other woman is given a name. No woman speaks to another woman.

Sergeant Wheeler is also named. A new low in the already rough "Nolan writing women" department. The main female character, Kat, is a lamppost with some really cringey quips. The lack of romantic subplot between the protagonist and Kat actually feels worse: it's like Nolan is saying "look! I can write women that aren't just love interests!" but the one-dimensionality, violence towards women, and male gaze totally persists.
