In case you aren’t familiar, Masterminds, the Bechdel test is a test of gender bias in works of fiction. It has three parts:
1. It has to have at least two [named] women in it.
2. Who talk to each other.
3. About something besides a man.
Sounds simple, right? You’d be surprised at how many of your favorite movies fail this test! While failing this test doesn’t necessarily mean that a work is sexist, it can certainly open up conversations about women’s roles in contemporary narratives. Let’s see how Mindhut’s favorite films fare!
