It's a pretty close run thing - there are lots of important female characters, but nearly every conversation between two women is about Victor. I think the only exceptions are some small talk between the two mothers and Emily and the Black Widow singing about Emily's qualities over Victoria. To be fair, the reverse test is similarly dubious-it's a movie about a couple getting married and most conversations are centered around that.

Victoria and her mother Mrs Everglott, and Victoria and her maid Hildegarde have some small conversations about subjects other than men.
