Although the possessive adjective would be "son" in both cases, the noun would be different - "ami" instead of "amie". So you know the friend is a woman in this case. Of course they're both pronounced the same, so if it were spoken rather than written then "you cannot say" would be the correct answer.
Sylvie parle à son amie. (female)
Sylvie parle à son ami. (male)
