Bo Peep is an extremely strong lead female character with her own ambitions which she achieves on her own. She has several interactions with her best friend Giggle McDimples about things besides men, and also interacts with Gabby Gabby and Jessie throughout the film, with her final interaction with the latter being a loving exchange between friends. Bonnie and her mother also talk multiple times about what Bonnie is doing, has done, or how she is feeling. Many other interactions between female characters happen throughout the film, and barely any involve men in any way.

For me it's clear that the movie doesn't pass the test. There are multiple named female characters, but they scarcely talk to each other alone and for long. Bo Peep and Giggle McDimple talk just two times and each time about Woody. Other contacts between female characters aren't even considerble dialogs or interactions. The last with Jessie is just a hug, come on!

Toy Story 4 does pass—but only barely. The longest conversation between female characters (not involving men) that I caught is maybe 10-15 lines between Bonnie, her mother, and the kindergarten teacher when Bonnie first goes to school. Giggle and Bo do talk but they can only go a handful of lines without steering the conversation towards Woody. There's a brief, 3-lined interaction with Dolly, Mrs. Potato Head, and Jessie in the RV ("What do we do?" "We have to stop them!" "How?") and of course the hug between Jessie and Bo at the end.

i agree with the rating, in this movie they're more women characters than the first movie, this time showing Bo leading her own path, not afraid and taking chances to discovering her world, woody saw that and gave him sense of courage and being okay to leave his comfort zone. Bonnie being the first girl to what's consider "boy" toys. also showing girls it's okay to like a rockets and dinosaurs. the dialog in part 4 did reach out to both genders equally.
