International Women's Day
8 March

Diversity on film is a key topic in the film industry and this assembly is aimed at helping young people to discuss the representation of female characters on film using the Bechdel test as a framework. The Bechdel test is used in this assembly as a fun way of analysing how women are represented on film, and starting a conversation about whether this is fair. Young people will apply the Bechdel test to clips from popular films before discussing how films break with tradition. The extension activities will allow children to explore the issues presented in the assembly in a creative manner. The resource is suitable to be used in an assembly format, in a film club setting or for use in the classroom (guidance is given below). These notes are intended to guide the teacher/leader while the Into Film International Women's Day assembly 7-11: The Bechdel test in films PowerPoint presentation is aimed at children.
