GREAT Movies that pass the Bechdel Test by Heather

The Bechdel Test isn’t really a good indicator of the quality of a film, it’s not even really an indicator of a good feminist film…but it is fascinating just how few movies pass, and it’s kind of exciting when a truly great film passes.

for those who don’t know, the Bechdel Test is used to measure female content in films. To pass, a film must have the following:

Two Female Characters (With Names)
…That Speak to Each Other
…About Something Other than a Man.
