Do You Know How Many Of These Oscar Nominees Pass The Bechdel Test?

Hint: not many.

What is the Bechdel-Wallace test??

The Bechdel-Wallace test is an evaluation method created by Liz Wallace to identify sexism through the gender divide in a movie, TV series, comic, or play. The evaluation is based upon the following:

# There must be at least 2 female characters.

# The characters must be named.

# Said characters must talk to each other at some point in the movie, play, etc.

# Said conversation must not be about a man, even if they're not involved in a romantic relationship with that man (so two sisters talking about their father wouldn't pass the test).
