So here’s the thing: I love the world but this film only had 7 interactions between 2+ women, some of which were only an introduction where a man came in and took over the conversation. Sigh…

47:30 – Queenie asks to speak to Tina at ministry of magic in Paris

50 – Queenie asked if she’s alright by Rosier

52 – Nagini calls Irma but Credence takes over conversation

1:12 – Queenie and Rosier talk for one min until Grindewald comes in

1:28 – Tina and Newt let in by woman

1:32 – Tina says hi to Leta

1:42 – Tina asks Leta if she knew who Credence really was
