Rodrigo Ortiz Vinholo said:
There are several female characters, at least three of which are named: Joe, her mother Kay and Liz, not counting women named only by their initials.

While several conversations tend to be one-sided or revolve around men, Joe and Liz have a significant conversation in which they discuss her skills for an assistant secretary position.

Sofia disagreed with the rating and said:
While there are several very important women, the conversation in question is only a few lines long and is about whether the male boss (who later turns out to be a love interest for both women in question) will find her worthy of the job, so I don't think it counts as a conversation about something other than a man
