The Bechdel test–which highlights gender inequality in the film industry–started as a joke in MacArthur Genius Alison Bechdel’s self-syndicated Dykes to Watch Out For. She never imagined that it would be picked up by the rest of the country–and the world–as a rallying cry for cinematic equality. Bechdel’s penchant for cultural criticism, insightful comics, and genre-bending works is well known. She’ll share inspirations behind some of her mind-blowing stuff, including her most recent graphic novel Are You My Mother? and her Tony Award-winning broadway hit “Fun Home.” Prepare for an evening of her wit, whimsy, and characteristic criticism.
