The McKenna Test

You’ve all heard of the Bechdel Test at this point, regarding two women having a conversation in a movie about something other than a man.

Mike Underwood proposed a test for lists of books and women writers as follows:

“Do we have a Bechdel Test analogue for Recommendation Lists? Where if you don’t have at >25% works by women and >25% PoC, you fail?”

In recognition of her efforts in getting bookstores like Waterstones to have more women writers on their tables, I propose to call this The McKenna Test.
