A discussion of what constitutes feminist film-making. The Bechdel Test originated in Alison Bechdel's comic from the '80s-'90s, "Dykes to Watch Out For." To pass, a film must feature at least 2 female characters, who talk, to each other, about something other than a man. Mako Mori is a lead character in "Pacific Rim," who is entirely strong and admirable, who is the heroine of the film, and who has a story arc that is not about her love-life. But "Pacific Rim" fails the Bechdel test; so, some have proposed a "Mako Mori Test" for films.
