two or more women talking to each other about something other than a man
at least one female character with her own narrative arc that is not about supporting a man’s story
a female character that cannot be removed from the plot and replaced with a sexy lamp without destroying the story.
no woman assaulted, injured or killed to further the story of another character.
complex women defined by solid characterization rather than a handful of underdeveloped masculine-coded stereotypes.
“Ghostbusters” blows all of these tests completely out of the water.
And generates at least one that I think ought to be added:
The Pizza Night Test
Women are shown eating non-salad food and no comment is made about anyone getting fat or breaking their diet.
I love everyone in this bar.
