I can remember Molly having a few conversations with women throughout the movie. In one Molly discusses the need to hedge her financial risk with her dealer, which in my view is a clear pass of the test.

In another she discusses setting up a game in New York with other women. Whilst the discussion is about recruiting (male) players, it is really about the financial terms of the game, so absent the conversation above, I think this conversation would be a (dubious) pass.

There may have been another couple of conversations with women that I have forgotten, but it's strange that a movie with *so* much dialogue and a strong female protagonist doesn't have more conversations between women...
