I think there are 5 named female characters, although it is dubious if it passes the conversation-test.

The only female conversations are between Arnies (Adam) daughter (Clara) and another woman. The first time her mother (Natalie) tells her not to ride on Adams back, so I guess that is about a man. Later on Clara tells her teacher she has to use the bathroom, and when the dogs are about to attack her she tells her mom she's scared and then Natalie tells her everything will be ok. So the only female conversations are between a child and a grown woman. They had a chance to pass the test when the hench-men comes with the remote-ontrol for the dogs, but of course it's the male thug who explains how it works, and when Natalie asks Talia if it's true, she just smiles and nods.
