I’d like to propose applying the Bechdel test to Singaporean English media. The next time you watch any local media in English, ask yourself these questions.
1. it includes at least two people of a minority race …
2. who have at least one conversation…
3. about something other than a Chinese person.
And to add Feminist Frequency’s condition on it -
4. …for more than 60 seconds.
Interested to hear any responses since it’s been a long time since I’ve consciously watched local television.
