Sally said:
There is literally a scene where two named women talk to the man sitting between them and not to each other.
Another named character talks to other women but they don’t reply/converse.

I have to disagree with you Sally. Even though I am a TRUE feminist, and the age of twelve. The test doesn't show you that both of the women in this film don't need a man and mutually aren't afraid to kill eachother.

Mabelle, that is NOT what the test measures. In order to pass the test, Two named female characters have a dialogue, about a subject that's not a male. Does that happen? Yes=pass; No=fail.

Whether or not the women need a man or kill each other is a different test. The Mabelle Test, maybe? PS, Happy Belated 12th Birthday :)

It has 2 women who talk to each other, however Valkyrie is not a name it's a title. She was never given a proper name.

Valkyrie and the grand master’s assistant never had any conversation - only with grand master. It's pretty strange.
