The lead female role, Jenny, is an active, intelligent character, but other females are very minor characters. At least one is named -- Mrs. Pye, the lady who runs the Bulldog Diner -- but she and Jenny do not have any significant conversations. In the scene where Jenny is an extra on a movie set, she speaks to another female extra about the untalented woman who got the lead role Jenny auditioned for, but the other extra is not named, as far as I recall...besides, this dialogue is not important to the plot.
