Named for the Author of the cartoon strip (DTWOF, 1985, p. 22) in which Alison Bechdel introduced this test, a rule for deciding what movie to watch. Could the characters find a film that met a very basic criteria: the movie must include two women who have a conversation about something other than men. The joke on Hollywood is how rigorous the test turns out to be. Here are my suggestions.
