The Bechdel Test
We are happy to collaborate with the A-Rate Campaign because we want to see gender equality in narrative films; in other words, the proper representation of women in our selected films.
A-Rate was created because even though women are half the world’s population, their roles in front of and behind the camera are limited. To get an A-rating, a film must pass the simple-sounding Bechdel Test, which states that a film must have the following:
1. At least two female characters with names
2. Who have a conversation with each other
3. About something other than a man
It sounds simple, but passing the test is harder than you think.
