Where are the Women in Doctor Strange?

HARDCORE SPOILER CENTRAL Well. For the most basic, formulaic, over-used origin story ever, Doctor Strange was really good. Deadpool was the only Marvel movie I've really enjoyed over the past couple of years, so I was expecting the worst and was pleasantly surprised.
