To pass the test, a film must answer the following three questions affirmatively:
1. Are there at least two women in the film (with names)?
2. Do they talk to each other?
3. Do they talk to each other about anything other than a man?
It's astonishing how few films pass this simple test--which, incidentally, doesn't indicate if a film is feminist, or good, or even watchable. It only indicates whether or not the movie has female presence at all.
Originaly from the comic stripDykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel.
