Nonsense, this is the marketing dept appealing to women and diversity.
Well, no, it's not nonsense. Yes, featuring the female lead in the publicity doesn't prove anything about the contents of the film itself, as a general rule; but independently of that, the previous film already established Uhura as a more prominent character than McCoy in the new continuity, and given that Saldana is a bigger star than Urban, there is absolutely no reason to expect that to change this time around.
