A chart of Bechdel Test scores

A movie is said to satisfy the Bechdel Test if it satisfies the following three criteria: The movie has at least two named female characters … who have a conversation with each other … about something other than a man The website BechdelTest.com scores movies accordingly, granting one point for each of the criteria above for a maximum of three points.

(It was still a great film, however.) The website also offers an API, which enabled data and analytics director Austin Wehrwein to create this time series chart of Bechdel scores for movies listed on BechdelTest.com: This chart only includes ratings for that subset of movies listed on Bechdeltest.com, so it’s not clear whether this…
