Is the Bechdel Test still relevant? How about a DuVernay Test? It’s pretty sad that we’re using a joke from a 1985 comic strip to determine a standard of feminism, but with so few tools available, it seems any measurable criteria by which to measure equality is helpful. Otherwise we’re stuck talking about how decision-makers FEEL, and we all know change feels scary.
