There is a very brief scene where mother & daughter, Tricia & Casey, speak while they wait to see Cameron:

Tricia: "Are you excited?"
Casey: "yes"
Tricia: "you sure look pretty"

Weak, but a pass?

I don't buy that ;) The whole purpose of them being there is waiting for Cameron and when she asks "Are you excited?" the implicit full question is "Are you excited to see your daddy?"

There are two or more women in this movie, but they only talk to each other about a man

this passes the first 2 tests, but not the third, since it has at least 3 if not more named female characters and the mother and daughter talk, but about Cameron
