The film has two central female characters: the titular character Baby Doll Meighnan and Aunt Rose. They talk to each other at least twice in the film. In the first conversation, Baby Doll talks to Aunt Rose about a job opportunity, but since the job is working for a man, they might be technically talking "about a man," though I think the object of the conversation is the job itself. However, the other conversation has Baby Doll give her thoughts to Aunt Rose about waiting for the future, and this conversation includes no mention of male characters.
