Did you catch the Oscars last night? I did, and for once I had actually seen a number of the films represented across various award categories.
I have to admit that while I was watching the show, I wasn't thinking much about feminism or the role of women in modern movies. With films like "The Help," "The Iron Lady" and "Albert Nobbs" appearing in several categories, one might think that women's roles have finally earned equal time in Hollywood. But as this video from Feminist Frequency points out, that is far from accurate.
In the video, Anita Sarkeesian, a feminist pop culture media critic and the blogger behind Feminist Frequency explains "The Bechdel Test," a rudimentary test to determine the strength of women's characters in movies.
Do you think this year's Oscar winners passed the test? Check out the video above to find out.
