There are a lot of major female characters and they have plenty of conversations amongst themselves, however most of these concern in one way or another a man. However, Glenn Close and Swoosie Kurtz have a few conversations about Cecile which probably just about qualify.

They don't "just about qualify." They qualify. Close & Kurtz have a umber of conversations about Cecile, her behavior, & her future. It's not about whether the majority of the conversations are about men. It also worth noting that all the conversations between men are about women.

I agree with Ebony. Cecile's education is discussed.
