These characters — more like paper dolls — practice only the most elemental science. They aren't going to inspire little girls. In fact, instead of the awe and grit exhibited by the likes of Laura Dern's Dr. Ellie Sattler and Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley or even the outright clumsy joy of the most recent Ghostbusters, they give way to hysteria and heebie-jeebies too soon and too often. This film may pass the Bechdel test, but it's only statistically feminist.
