In failing to show on screen an equivalent mix of male and female characters in equal numbers, both movies fail to demonstrate a reasonable level of gender equality in the 23rd century (or the 21st century).
How do you ever cope when watching reruns of TOS episodes?

As an aside, after you remove Uhura and Carol from the mix, do you think there are enough women remaining? And where are they?
