Theres only a handful of named female characters, several are prostitutes and most are victims of Mars male-dominated society. The two lead females fight but never have a conversation. And in a roundabout way they are fighting over a man.
Its pretty typical of a Hollywood dumb action film dominated by men. Good entertainment but not at all feminist. The original short story is much more cerebral but also treats women like sex objects or punching bags.
