The main character talks to her mother, and a majority of the women in the town, some of whom are her friends (and they don't always talk about a man), although their conversations are not always positive.

Passes with flying colors. The main characters and supporting characters are named females and have lots to talk about. The protagonist even uses her skills as a weapon.

Most of the characters (including the main character) are women and they have lots of conversations. Not all of the conversations are about men but there are a lot of convos that are indirectly about men (about women trying to dress to impress/seduce/please men). I would love to see an exact count.
