->And I tried to remember any case in the course of my reading where two women are represented as friendsÖThey are now and then mothers and daughters. But almost without exception they are shown in their relation to men. It was strange to think that all the great women of fiction were, until Jane Austenís day, not only seen by the other sex, but seen only in relation to the other sex. And how small a part of a womanís life is that.
--> -- '''Virgina Woolf'''

->Itís not that the Bechdel test identifies particularly good or feminist films. Itís that itís [[DamnedByFaintPraise a low bar to clear]] that huge swaths of things simply donít.

->''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' was a show conceived in feminist or at least pro-woman terms. Conceived by a woman writer-producer, Jeri Taylor, along with Michael Piller, ''Voyager'' was the first Trek series with a woman Captain. Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) was an interesting mixture of Kirk-style heroics, nurturing, maternal sensitivity, and thoughtfully enquiring scientific curiosity (Janeway is a scientist as well as a Captain; unfortunately, this aspect of her persona [[{{Flanderization}} was downplayed in later years]]). Whereas ''Voyager'' had a strong female Captain, Janeway and several other strong women characters, ''[[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise]]'' features two female characters who represent two sides of the debased woman in patriarchy, [[StrawFeminist the tough woman denounced by hostile males]] and [[HystericalWoman the fumbling, wan hysteric.]]
