As far as I could tell, in no context are two women (named or otherwise) seen talking to each other, let alone about a man. While the named female characters appear strong, they are still archetypes of mother and femme fatal. Polly is no doubt key to the plot and is involved/responsible for pivotal moments, but is hardly involved in the final battle scene, or much fighting at all, and when she does ot is often followed by comments like "boys always leave such a mess".
