Solara talks to her mother about her current captivity and attempted prostitution. They also discuss the bible a bit.

Solara also talks to the cannibalistic old woman about trespassers (probably both men and woman trespassers).

Do the mother and old woman have names?

Solara's mother, played by Jennifer Beals, is named Claudia and has a significant role in the film.

The womyn in this movie are only used as token pawns to advance the plot of the central male characters and get played off against each other.

That's not part of the test. Anyway Solara isn't a "token pawn" as she becomes part of the central plot.

Claudia is also the only reason the main villain doesn't get what he's after.

I loved this movie, but Solara speaks only directly to her mother, Claudia, and they talk about the two main ... male ... characters. Solara's a strong character, but "2 named women talking to each other about something other than a man (or a man's activities" is pretty clear. This ain't it. Still, kick ass girl and fun sci fi.
