The Bechdel Test

The Bechdel Test= Three questions that assess the presence of women, or lack there of, in movies.

#1. Are there two or more women in the movie who have names?

#2. Do they talk to each other?

#3. And do they talk to each other about something other than men?

Can you believe that most movies out there don’t pass this little test? Crazy, right?
