All of this hinges on whether or not you believe the devil has a gender. Since one of the women is secretly the devil I suppose it could be argued against, but she is initially introduced as a (named) woman.

Cody Marsili disagreed with the rating and said:
I disagree entirely. Though, there are more than two named female characters that do interact with one another, their is never a seen where the two women are together without males. I would also like to add that the few lines said to one another had to do primarily with which man in the elevator did what to whom. Therefore it does not pass the test.

Cody, that's not part of the test. There are two women, and they talk to each other about things other then men. Cut and dry.
