snuggycas asked: Chloe, what's the bechdel test?
The Bechdel Test is basically a test you can apply to media (especially TV and movies) to gauge how friendly it is toward women/how seriously they take their female characters/how independent the female characters are from their male counterparts. The test is this:
- it has to have at least two women in it
- who talk to each other
- about something besides a man
Alex Annie Alexis Ann passes the test because Jody and Alex and Mama talk about motherhood and each other.
Three female characters talking about not only not men but motherhood and other women. Astounding.
