What’s the secret ingredient for a successful film? Estrogen —> http://voc.tv/1cKyE7Z
Dear Hollywood: we know how you can make more money in 2014.
Put more women onscreen.
We analyzed the top 50 biggest box office movies of 2013 to see if they passed the Bechdel Test, which evaluates whether a movie has two or more women in it who have a conversation about something other than a man. It’s named after cartoonist Alison Bechdel, who wrote about it in her popular comic Dykes To Watch Out For (Bechdel actually credits her friend Liz Wallace with the rule).
Autostraddle also covered this really well (while managing to add that the Bechdel Test while, a good benchmark, doesn’t guarantee quality - which you can probably tell from the infographic).
