The Next Bechdel Test by FiveThirtyEight

"The Next Bechdel Test" was a months-long project searching for and testing ways to measure inclusion and representation in the American film industry. With input from professionals in and around Hollywood we created 12 tests and applied them to the top 50 movies of 2016, to see how the movies fared, and to see how these new tests could be used to hold the movie industry to higher standards with the use of empirical evidence.
