I don't really think this is a "dubious" pass... the movie clearly passes the test (keep in mind that it's a low bar to pass).
I'd need to see the movie again to verify, but I think there might have also been some conversations between Andy's mom, Bonnie's mom, and Bonnie at the daycare center.
I got the sense that they made a real effort to expand the female roles after the first two Toy Stories. Barbie and Mrs. Potato Head, in particular, had major roles in the story.
Later, Mrs. Potato head and Jessie comfort Barbie about being abandoned by Molly.
