Several interesting female characters, but the only dialog between two of them and not about a man is a shopping scene. And that scene is arguably 'about' a man because we know both of the women are sleeping with the same man (so, although they never mention him, that's really the subtext of their interaction -- more important to viewers than the shopping).
