Swedish Movie Theaters Add a Bechdel Rating

Well, four of them, but it's a start: the Swedish cinemas in question have added gender-bias rating to all of their showings. In order to get an A, the films must pass the Bechdel test (in which two female characters talk about something other than a man). Sundays are for A-rated films — like the Hunger Games — only. Meanwhile, in America, we get pink football jerseys on Sundays. Keep it up, Sweden.
