Not one of them is weak in my opinion, or underdeveloped. I love Sakura, Ino, and Tsunade and find them to be very strong. I usually don't care for the Hinata-"type," but even she is a great character in my opinion, especially in her quest to become stronger. I only wish we could see more of her. Still, I don't feel her development to be lacking.
True, the females in the manga are sort of put into a traditional healer role, but there are also those going on the front-lines, so to speak, so I think it evens out. The ratio seems realistic to me.
Watch/Read Shingeki no Kyojin. That is what character development and strong female characters (and male characters) look like. Naruto is exactly how you do not do female characters.
