There is only one conversation between two women during the whole movie and it lasts less than 2 minutes. Candy and Rose discuss Rose's pregnancy, who the father is, Candy tells Rose she can go get an abortion, but Rose says her father won't let her go anywhere.

There are actually several conversations between women. Below is a group conversation between Olive, Rose, and Candy.

Rose: Mornin', Miss Worthington.
Olive: Why don't you come up and visit
me at the house? I know I've
got clothes that will fit you.
Rose: Okay.
Candy: I'm sure I can find
a ton of things to fit you.

Candy and Nurse Agnes also talk about Candy still wanting to have children after her abortion, though its unclear if Candy's really talking to her or Dr. Larch.
