Bechdel Test

on 20 J0000002America/Chicago, 2011

This test evaluates the representation of women in films today. Go through your DVD library and see how many of your movies pass the test. I think you’ll be surprised by how few do. This video applies the test to some current movies, including some Oscar nominees. The comic strip below is the original Alison Bechdel comic Dykes to Watch Out For featuring “The Rule.”
