MFA in Screenwriting Student Trio with a Mission Beyond the Classroom: Screenplay List Called, "The Bitch List," Highlights Women's Dialogue

By StudentFilmmakers.com
posted Mar 21, 2012, 12:33

A trio of MFA in Screenwriting students based in Hollywood have formed a group called The Bitch Pack. They have announced the screenplay list called, "The Bitch List," and have partnered with Pop Change (where popular culture meets social change) to better facilitate data collection for the list. Pop Change was started by Dr. Eleanor Morrison, a graduate of USC's Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. (You can sign up here to be part of this new tide.)

TBP member Thuc Nguyen says, "It's sad to see that only two Oscar nominated films passed The Bechdel Test. Women talk to each other about all kinds of things in real life besides men, so why don't women do the same more in our 'best' films? Thanks to Feminist Frequency for this video describing this year's field of nominated films and if/how they made the cut."

TBP is keeping a tally of votes from Hollywood executives, managers, agents, assistants and readers of scripts they see in 2012 that pass The Bechdel Test:

1. It has to have at least two [named] women in it.
2. Who talk to each other.
3. About something besides a man.

TBP will announce the results in January 2013. The Bechdel Test page has breakdowns of movies that have already been produced and released. TBP will concentrate on scripts that perhaps should get made. Shout out to the creators of The Blood List for horror scripts and The Black List for just great screenplays. Email TBP your votes with your affiliation to: biatchpack (at) gmail (dot) com
