Easily passes with Scarlet having many conversations with the other women.

A good argument to Hollywood's current belief that women can't carry major films.

I definitely agree. There are even scenes between women other than Scarlett, for instance Belle Watling making a donation to Melanie.

There are so many conversations among women and about so many topics to mention them all! Melanie and Scarlett have a conversation while registering the pockets of the killed soldier. Scarlett's sisters talk about her "shameful" behaviour at the Twelve Oaks party. Aunt Pittypat, Melanie and some other women talk about Scarlett's behaviour at the ball in Atlanta. Pittypat later talks on the street about giving out a party in honour of Bonnie Butler.
