Quotes: The Bechdel Test
"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 a low bar to clear that huge swaths of things simply donít."

"Even when they formed their own religious group, these women still go on about shrivelled gonads and limp dicks. Talk about failing the Bechdel test."
