The Oscars and the Bechdel Test (Courtesy of Justice Morath via PSYCHTEACHER listserv on 2/26/13: 

The Bechdel Test involves evaluating a movie by asking three questions: 1. Does the movie have at least two [named or otherwise central character] women in it? 2. Do these women talk to each other? 3. Do they talk to each other about something besides a man?

"Alice Dreger works with people at the edge of anatomy, such as conjoined twins and intersexed people. In her observation, it's often a fuzzy line between male and female, among other anatomical distinctions. Which brings up a huge question: Why do we let our anatomy determine our fate?" (Length: 19mins.)



Madeleine Albright: On being a woman and a diplomat. (Length: 13 mins.)

"Former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright talks bluntly about politics and diplomacy, making the case that women's issues deserve a place at the center of foreign policy. Far from being a "soft" issue, she says, women's issues are often the very hardest ones, dealing directly with life and death. A frank and funny Q&A with Pat Mitchell from the Paley Center."




Phil Zimbardo: The demise of guys? (Length: 4 minutes, 47 seconds)

"Psychologist Philip Zimbardo asks, "Why are boys struggling?" He shares some stats (lower graduation rates, greater worries about intimacy and relationships) and suggests a few reasons."





Transgender Basics by Rosa Juel Nordentoft (Length: 19 minutes, 28 seconds) (Thanks Katie Herzig!)

"Transgender Basics is a 20 minute educational film on the concepts of gender and transgender people. Two providers from the Gender Identity Project discuss basic concepts of gender - sex, identity and gender roles - as three transgender community members share their personal experiences of being trans and genderqueer."
