Blabbing About The Bechdel Test

Last week the lovely Cindy Marie Jenkins had the also lovely Caroline Sharp and I over to sit in separate rooms on different computers in a massive point of google+ missing hangout (point being missed by both Caroline and my internet connections which are time warped to 1997 and reject such newfangled concepts as "streaming" and "video"). We talked about The Bechdel Test and how it applies to film, plays and us. 

Sorry for the sound issues. We're still working out the system. But there has been some talk of us continuing to blab about these and related issues as we couldn't shut up.

If you're not familiar with the Bechdel test Feminist Frequency has a great little explanation.

While we make the point over and over again that the Bechdel test is a tool to look at groups of movies and not individual films here is a list for you to check on individual movies.

Here is a great article that will refute all your "well but's"

10 points to anyone who counts the number of dog barks in our hangout.
