There are several female named characters: Shanna (Ellen Ewusie), Mother Mayter (Brenda McDonald) and Sue Chin Yao (Elise Lew).

There's also Shanna's lover (Melissa Gonzalez), whose named is never mentioned during the episode but it is in the film credits: Mira.

The only "conversation" between women is a sex scene between Shanna and Mira, and when they are interrupted a sort of an argument follows.

Depending on considering Shanna's lover as named or unnamed character, this episodes passes all three test or just one.

Ill stick to Mira being an unnamed character. Not sure about it, though.
