Has more than one woman but they do not talk to each other, aren't in the same scene together .
However two of the women in it do talk about something other than a man (Selena Gomez and Margot Robbie) but they either talk with a man or alone to the screen.

All the women in this film simply serve as props - none of them have anything resembling a character or personality.

The women serve as props, because there were no female characters of relevance in the original source material

I would say that Mark Baum's boss/liason (?), Kathy Tao, is a bit more than a prop in this movie. That said, she doesn't talk to any of the other women.

Kathy Tao and, to some extent, Georgia Leo, the S&P officer, are somewhat valid characters. Mark's wife Cynthia and Evie, the Jamie brother's ex are more of props. Generally, female characters are bystanders in the movie.
