Watch This Instead

https://shannonvturner.com/bechdel

Uses the Bechdel Test API to figure out whether your movie passes the Bechdel Test and Imdb Ratings to suggest a better movie if it doesn't.

What's the Bechdel Test?

It's a test of women's representation in film. There are three criteria:

  1. There must be at least two women in the film;
  2. Who talk to one another;
  3. About something other than a man.

Watch This Instead has rating info for over 6000 movies. When you search for new movies, they get added to the database.

The Bechdel Test API is user-driven. If you'd like to contribute so that the API (and my site) has more movies, go to http://bechdeltest.com/add/ (note: I am not affiliated with bechdeltest.com, but their API is at the core of this project)

This project uses the Bechdel Test API and the Open Movie Database API

It's also a Twitter Bot!

@BechdelBot

Just @-mention @bechdelbot with the name of your film and the bot will reply with whether it passed or failed the Bechdel test!
