Bechdel Test Talks: Awards Shows

THE BECHDEL TEST TALKS

are a monthly series where we examine entertainment through the lens of The Bechdel Test.

Etta Devine & Caroline Sharp join me every month!

The Bechdel Test asks 3 basic questions for every story (originally applied to film):

1. Is there more than 1 female character (with a name)?

2. Do they talk to each other?

3. About anything besides men?

These perimeters are not meant to be judgement calls, but simply starting points for discussion.

Awards Shows!
