The Great Movies That Passed The Bechdel Test

 

What is Bechdel Test

Bechdel test is a simple test that used as an indicator for the active presence of women in the fiction and to call attention to gender inequality.The test was popularized by Alison Bechdel's comic Dykes to Watch Out For, in a 1985 strip called The Rule. Passing the test doesn't mean the film is a good movie, or it is a feminist movie it just points out a systematic problem in the cinema industry.

What are the Bechdel rules?

There are three criteria that a movie or a fiction should provide these in order to pass the Bechdel test 

  1. It has to have at least two women whose names are given before or after.

  2. Those women must talks to each other in any scene. 

  3. This talk must be about something besides a man.

We will constantly update the list of movies that passed the Bechdel-Test. If you have any suggested movies that passed the test and should be in the list, please don't hesitate to send us.
