About

The Bechdel Test, or Bechdel-Wallace Test, sometimes called the Mo Movie Measure or Bechdel Rule is a simple test which names the following three criteria: (1) it has to have at least two women in it, who (2) who talk to each other, about (3) something besides a man. The test was popularized by Alison Bechdel's comic, the name of which Google won't let me put on this page for inciting hate, in a 1985 strip called The Rule. For a nice video introduction to the subject please check out The Bechdel Test for Women in Movies on feministfrequency.com.

If you need access to the raw data, check out the docs for the api.

The list

The list you see to the left of this text consists of an icon with the result of the tests (explained below), the title (clicking it will take you to its details page, where you can find the reviews and comments) and finally two optional icons, also explained below. Clicking the icon before the title will take you to the movie's IMDb page.

For the sake of practicality, I've taken the liberty to read the first criterion as only named female characters counting.

There are currently 10136 movies listed. Some stats and graphs are available. Be sure to check out Ten graphics on the Bechdel test on Reddit for more graphs.

You can also view the list sorted by year, sorted by title (default), title, date added (latest first), number of comments, number of reviews or rating.
An RSS feed[RSS icon] is also available, listing the latest 50 movies added to the list.

You can view just the Movies in the IMDb Top 250 and last but not least, you can search the list.
