The Bechdel test is used as a way to “measure” how feminist a film or piece of media is. But the rules for passing the Bechdel test are way too simple and in fact the test itself was never meant to be used in a public way. I want to create a brand new Bechdel test that not only solves the current criticisms of the test but create a specific set of rules that pushes the boundaries of the original test as well.
