The Bechdel Test for Women in Movies

A simple test: 1) are there at least two women in the movies with names; 2. do they talk to each other?; 3. do they talk about something other than men? When a male complained about women always talking about men on facebook I replied: And men babbling about sports and war all the time is - cool?? Hint: Males babble about dominance games, women babble about how screwed over they are in a world rule by people obsessed with dominance games.
