I don't think two named characters talk about something other than a man - the Manson women I think refer to each other but don't actually talk to each other? An unnamed movie theater staff woman talks to Margot Robbie. I don't think this passes.

Doesn't pass - the movie ticket girl doesn't have a name and the discussions with the Manson girls largely revolve around Charlie and Cliff.

Sharon Tate has Joanna Pettet (played by Rumor Willis) over towards the end of the film. That's a firm pass.

Salomé Mercier disagreed with the rating and said:
I disagree : I literally don't remember any scene where two named women (let's all recall that one of the main female character is named "pussycat", we don't even know her real name...) actually talk about something interesting. The Manson women refer to each other occasionally but they don't really talk together, not for more than 3 seconds. Sharon Tate really has just a few lines throughout the whole movie, and her only real conversation with a women is with the tickets girl, whose name is not mentionned.

This film 100% passes in multiple instances. Though the great and hilarious Kate Berlant's character at the movie theater isn't named in (probably) the longest conversation between 2 female characters in this movie, the minimum requirement is met no fewer than four times.

Squeaky (Dakota Fanning): That's a car. That's a strange car. Snake, go see who's outside.

Snake gets up, goes to look out the front door.

Squeaky: So who is it?

Snake (Sydney Sweeney): I ain't for sure yet. It's a bitchin' yellow Coupe DeVille.

Sqeuaky: Keep an eye on 'em.

Later:
Pussycat: Hey, where's Gypsy?

Snake: She's down by the chop shop.

Later:
Pussycat: Hey, where is everybody? Where's the children?

Gypsy (Lena Dunham): Everybody left for Santa Barbara.

Pussycat: Really? Charlie's gone? Everybody left?

Gypsy: Well, not everybody, everybody, but mostly everybody.

Pussycat: Drag. I really wanted Cliff to meet Charlie.
(Charlie and Cliff are referred to, but after conversation that makes this pass)

Connie gets on a horse
Lulu: Not a bad mount, Connie!

Connie: I used to ride horses everyday back in Tennessee.

Lulu: Is that right?

There may be more of this at the Spahn Ranch, but I think this proves that it passes. There is also conversation between Katie and Sadie that makes it qualify as a pass in the car before the home invasion. Sadie rants about how Hollywood taught them to kill and that they should kill those who taught them, and Katie says that's a great idea.
