In this movie, we have Padmé, her baby daughter Leia (does she count?) and Beru. Howevet Beru doesn't say anything in this movie...

And we also have a few female jedi characters, like Stass Allie, Luminara Unduli or Aayla Secura

If they had kept the cut scenes, then the movie would pass on all three counts, since there were cut scenes with Padme, Mon Mothma, and other Senators talking, and one of the others was also a woman. And they sure weren't talking about men.

Sam disagreed with the rating and said:
How is this dubious? Padme and Leia are explicitly named. If memory serves, Beru is named on-screen, as well. While the female Jedi are only named in off-screen materials, we still have more than two named female characters, without any kind of contention!

One of them is literally *named* on-screen.

Yeah ok, you have 3 female characters, but one doesn't talk, and one is a literal baby. The 3rd is designed to be Anakin's hot girlfriend lol. This does not pass.
