Bechdel Test

Leave a comment

In class, we learned about and wrote a paper based on the ideas of the Bechdel test. I had never heard of this test before. The Bechdel test is a three question test used to evaluate a movie. The movie must have at least two female characters, they must have names, and they must have a conversation with one another for at least one minute. The conversation must also be about something other than men. I began thinking about all of my favorite movies, and almost all of them failed this test. This really opened my eyes. I never realized just how under rated female are in the movie industry. Majority of movies are based around men and their adventures. I would love for people to become more aware of this, and make the movie paying field more equal
