2 thoughts on “Sweden Institutes Bechdel Ratings

  1. It was shocking to see how many movies failed this test! Even though the Bechdel test is a great way to create awareness about female characters in movies, I don’t think it’ll make a big impact on how movies will be scripted and produced in the future. I mean, I didn’t notice these things in movies like Up, Harry Potter and Toy Story.

    And the rules looked so general at first… but that also leaves a lot of room for interpretation? For example, does a voiced object count as a female character (i.e., Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast)? Or what about female program voices in action movies?
