WOMEN IN MOVIES
Anita Sarkeesian presents a handy litmus test for women in film. Created by cartoonist Allison Bechdel, the Bechdel Test invites us to think a little deeper about the movies we watch, and to analyze the subliminal messages woven into the fabric of pop culture. Great little clip.
Anita Sarkeesian has a great website, Feminist Frequency. Dispense with your stereotypes and check it out. Ask Anita questions about pop culture here.
"One Million Years B.C." would probably fail the Bechdel Test
