Beyond Bechdel

The criteria for the Bechdel Test is simple:
1. Two female characters talk to each other.
2. They talk about something other than men.
3. Their characters have names (not Lady in Grocery Line #3).
However, it's alarming how few films pass this basic test.

Let’s go above and beyond basic with films that shed light on complex relationships between women. Whether sisters, friends or lovers, the women in these films engage in meaningful dialogue, putting the Bechdel to the test.
