Hear from American cartoonist Alison Bechdel at the Wheeler Centre

You've heard of the Bechdel Test, right? It's a way of assessing whether a movie or other work of fiction is sexist or not. If the film contains a conversation between two women who are not talking about a man, then the film passes the Bechdel Test.

It's named after American cartoonist Alison Bechdel, who proposed the test in her comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For. In March, Bechdel will be hosting an evening at the Wheeler Centre. She is a celebrated writer having released two graphic memoirs – Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic and Are You My Mother: A Comic Drama. Her work deals with the issues of oppression and liberation and the overlap of personal and political worlds.
