All characters in this movie are female, other than Mother, who is technically a robot but goes by she/her and has a woman's voice, and the girl's baby brother, who is not born until much later in the film. Other than the brother, there are no other males to talk about, so most dialogue in the film is not about males.

Mother said:
Technically speaking, it doesn’t pass, because the only named characters are Mother (who is an AI, not a woman) and Daughter. But Hilary Swank’s character, while not named, is important enough to the plot that it fits the *spirit* of the test.
