Film Student Considers Dropping Out After Discovering Their Lectures Don't Pass The Bechdel Test

Newly enrolled film student, Joseph Madden, has concerns about the content of his coursework after the first few lectures. We asked Joseph for more details: "Well I was attending my first lecture, the lecturer being a man, and after about the first 30 minutes, I started to realise that the female representation was severely lacking. I brushed it off at first, however, I noticed a pattern in which if, and when, a woman was speaking, they would only talk about other men! This revelation had me sick to my stomach, and I'm even considering dropping out. To my lecturers: do better."
