Zenon.Receives disagreed with the rating and said:
There is not only the wife of Leonidas (which at least is somwhow 'strong' and stuff), but the poor stoned out oracle girl.
So the movie passes at least the 1st level, right?

@Zenon.Receives, no; the female characters should have names, something which Stoned-Out-Oracle-Girl has not been granted. Still fails all tests.

So what about Queen Gorgo isn't a name?

Yeah, Queen Gorgo is the only female character with a name. The orcale and the destroyed village child are the only other female characters that talk. So no pass for 300.
