  1. Your post reminds me of the Bechdel Test and this Tedtalk:

    • Oh, a comparison between Star Wars and the Wizard of Oz! Yay! Very interesting tedtalk. Makes me feel a bit guilty about the kind of games me and my little brother play though (hint: there’s lots of fighting).

  2. That’s almost as depressing as the fact that the only female character in the prequels fell almost immediately into the pregnancy/die so the male characters can develop trope. But yay Leia!

    • Ugh. Didn’t she also die because of Anakin? Like, she just gave up and died… (I’ve only seen the first of the new movies.)

      Yes, yay Leia! I must rewatch the movies with my newfound appreciation of her (Before, I used to dismiss lots of female characters because they were… well, female.)
