"If you haven’t heard of the Bechdel Test, it’s a test of gender representation in the media. It has three criteria: a) there must be at least two women, who b) talk to each other, c) about something other than a man. Only half of all movies pass this test, most often because the female characters never talk to each other; they are defined by their relationships with men. By contrast, female characters and their relationships with each other are so central to the story of Orphan Black that [it] not only passes the Bechdel Test, but fails the reverse of the [it]." (x)

“Last year, Renisha McBride was fatally shot by Theodore Wafer, as the 19-year-old unarmed, lost and frightened Black women sought help after a car accident in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn Heights, MI. Wafer’s tral for 2nd degree murder and manslaughter is set to begin on Monday, July 21. Now is the time to demonstrate that Renisha has supporters across the country who are counting on Wayne County Prosecutor, Kym Worthy, to deliver justice.”
