The Bechdel Project
Bechdel Project is a non-profit company dedicated to telling stories that pass the Bechdel Test. Because the stories we tell shape our world, Bechdel Project wants to change culture by changing those stories. Currently, Bechdel Project is offering educational residencies to universities and schools; devising a rock musical based on the life of an evolutionary biologist; and hosting a reading series with new playwrights to develop new Bechdel-passing work.
