Bechdel Tested tackles topics of women’s representation in various fields. Like the Bechdel Test itself, this series shines a light on women who take a leading role in their respective industries, the challenges of maintaining those positions, and how to create better representation and inclusion for all women. Each bi-monthly event focuses on women in a specific industry and screens a women-centric film which is relevant to a particular occupation, features a panel discussion with experts and leaders in their field, as well as networking and drinks.
Our mission is to advance women’s roles in various industries through public discussion, community building, and cinema.
