Sweden now rates movies based on sexism

  • Several Swedish theaters have begun to let the audience know if a particular movie is sexist. According to a simple test, a movie has to have at least two female characters speaking to each other about something other than men. The Hunger Games passes the test but movies such as Star Wars don't. 

    This method is known as the Bechdel test and doesn't give an official rating by any means. The bigger objective is to "see more female stories and perspectives on cinema screens."

    The Swedish Film Institute supports the cause.
