Plenty of non-man talk between women in this movie; passes with flying colors.

Katie disagreed with the rating and said:
I was excited to see this movie passed the Bechdel test, and then was disappointed to find within the first minute of the movie we find out a 15 year old girl is having sex with her step-father. The whole movie revolves around this, I don't see any point where two women talk about anything besides a man or looking good for a man in the whole film.

To Katie: Disagreeing with the story is different from disagreeing with the rating. Fact is that it passed the test.
Also, it is ultimately a story about the coming-of-age of a teenager who finally gets over the guy and starts to be content with her singleness.

Diary of a Teenage Girl passes all three of the Bechdel tests. While this coming of age movie has a lot of interactions with women talking about men… it does pass the tests. There are several moments where names female characters are interacting, having a conversation about things other than men.
