I guess the dubious aspect is that many of the interchanges are between characters who are female but who pass as men. But obviously the film is about women and aspects the female experience in that time period.

Zari disagreed with the rating and said:
The dialogue between the named female staff and with Mrs. Baker would qualify this as confirmed, not "dubious". Albert and Hubert should be counted as male, since their activities goes beyond "getting a job", but it still passes the test without it.
