The Bechdel test was created by Alison Bechdel and Liz Wallace to evaluate the gender gap in creative works such as movies, television series, plays, etc.

For a movie to pass this test, it must meet the following requirements:

1. Have two named female characters...

2. ...who speak to one another...

3. ...about something unrelated to a man.
