Sarah and Sharon talk about Sarah's career ambitions and talents (specifically as they relate to infiltrating a mixed-gender group of activists) within the first five minutes of the movie.

In the metaphorical "baptism" scene, Tess gives Jane (Sarah) the control to stop the washing, and the two men remain quiet.

Jane (Sarah) has the conversation with Eve in sign language.

Jane (Sarah) and Ellen Page's character (??? having a brain fart) briefly talk about the straight jacket before dinner.

It passes early and often, and is pretty much straight-up not sexist, hard as that may be to believe.

I will confirm what Dan said. Brit and Patricia both play named female characters who talk to each other about something other than a man at least once. But it's possible they do so several times. I don't remember. This is one of the best films to come out in 2013 that passes the test.
