I don't disagree necessarily, but I think the "two named women" is a little dubious if the women are Rachel Dawes, Martha Wayne, and Jessica. Martha Wayne is barely in the movie before she gets murdered. I don't think she even has any lines. Also, Jessica's only purpose is to be a Wayne Enterprises secretary who looks startled when Bruce gives her his name.
