Conceived by cartoonist Alison Bechdel in a 1985 strip from her seminal comic "Dykes To Watch Out For," it is used to highlight the rare movies which feature women talking to each other about something other than a man. That's literally it. Three criteria: It has to have (1) two named women who (2) talk to each other, (3) about something other than a man.
