Only three women talk at all in this movie. I thought it was two, but I remembered that a women in a car that blows up says something right before it explodes.

this movie features a few leading men and only one leading woman. This movie is mostly about a government spy crew (similar to CIA) that is made up of only men...not sure why they couldn't add a woman, or two, to the government spy crew.

Why does it matter if there's a woman in the movie or not though? Like why is this test even necessary? Just don't watch it if you don't like it.

Beep, the test is a simplistic way to evaluate if a movie is sexist or not. If you think about it, two women talking about something other than a man should be extremely easy to see, however, many movies don't accomplish it. Is not a serious test in any way, just a curious way to reflect on Hollywood's tendencies when wrtiting for women.
