The Simpsons Explain
The Bechdel–Wallace Test
A video collage where only the women of The Simpsons explain The Bechdel–Wallace Test.
The test measures the representation of women in films, asking whether a work:
1. features at least two women
2. who talk to each other
3. about something other than a man.
Passing or failing the test, does not necessarily mean that a specific film represents women well. Rather, the test is used to call attention to gender inequality in films.
It’s a low bar, yet roughly more than 40 percent of every U.S. movie ever made fail.
