The Bechtel Test

This clip explains the Bechtel test: a simple way to test for sexism in movies.

Question: Do you think this is a fair way to test for sexism?

  1. I'm not sure if it's a fair way to test for sexism. But at the very least it's food for thought.

    I found myself thinking this over and really did find it challenging to find many films that fit this criteria, but I do think it'd be unfair to write off any film that doesn't have two women discussing something other than a man as sexist. Some film scripts just don't call for it.
