A Deeper Look at Gender Balance in Movies (Extending FiveThirtyEight’s Next Bechdel Test)

We were inspired by the FiveThirtyEight feature The Next Bechdel Test wanted to use FLIQ to extend this work. We’re going to dramatically increase the scope of this analysis from 50 movies to over 1,900, analyze the trend over time and highlight the data gaps that still exist so that we can more clearly understand the data does and does not tell us about gender balance in movies.
