1) Two named female characters
2) who talk to each other
3) about something other than a man
Mako Mori Test:1) At least one female character
2) Who gets her own narrative arc
3) That is not about supporting a man’s story
While it's obviously well-intentioned, I think the Mako Mori test is missing the point.
The Bechdel test was immortalized in a comic that pointed out a serious problem using a memorable little catchphrase. It was never meant as the be and all and end all of feminism in movies. It was a clever way of making a larger statement.
A movie is not lady-friendly because it passes the Bechdel test. A movie is not lady-unfriendly because it fails the Bechdel test. The Bechdel test isn't a test at all. It's just commentary.
We need commentary. We need people to notice that Hollywood is an unfriendly environment for female characters. What we don't need are any more ways to make feminism divisive. I think we've got that covered.
