Can Your T-Shirt Pass the Bechdel Test? This One Can


The Bechdel test (which it’s creator Alison Bechdel would prefer to be renamed the Wallace-Bechdel test since she she credits her friend with its origin) has become the yardstick that measures female representation in media.

What is the test you ask? For a fictional work to be considered a decent representation of women it must:

1) have at least two women in it, who 2) talk to each other, about 3) something other than a man.

It’s become so pervasive that Sweden even has a film rating system based on it.

In their own irreverent, intelligent, humorous way, our friends at Geeks Out have made a piece of clothing pass this test of feminism

Bechdel test tee

This adorable tee passes all three criteria of the Bechdel test and gives a good chuckle while it’s at it.


Let everyone know how easy it is to pass the Bechdel Test.

A stunning shirt to wear to the next all male Women In Comics panel, or hollywood blockbuster.

There are less than 14 days left to get one, but that’s plenty of time before New York Comic-Con.

AND, if you’re modeling one at New York Comic-Con, please stop by our booth for a special gift!
