The Bechdel Test

I can’t say that I’m at all shocked by the fact that Hollywood is a male-driven industry or that the content of the movies they make are male-dominated, but I thought that more progress than this had been made. I’m not sure how I feel about this with regard to my own work though. On the one hand, my novel (and several short stories) pass the test. On the other hand, it’s much easier to have more characters in general in a novel and also I use the word “whores” a lot.
