Heather said:
There are three female characters who speak: Evolet, Baku's mother, and Old Mother. Baku's mother only addresses her son. Even if you count Old Mother as a named character, there is no reciprocal dialogue between her and Evolet. Another female character, Cala, is named in the credits. She has no lines in the final cut of the film.

Old Mother takes young Evolet's face in her hands, "The fathers have sent her... she came to tell us of four legged demons... from this hunt a warrior will arise, and this one will be his woman..." addressing all the people, no reply from Evolet.

Old Mother calls Evolet, "Evolet, come here." No response from Evolet.

Old Mother warns Evolet, "You stay here." No response from Evolet.
