Good news for all the women out there. Now the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has adopted a feminist classification system ‘F-rating’ to that will highlight films that are written, directed or have leading women.
The new 'F-rating' was originated by Bath Film Festival executive director Holly Tarquini, who was inspired by the Bechdel test. This system was devised by the cartoonist Alison Bechdel-which says at least two female characters should feature in a movie discussing something other than men.
The specific rating is based on a classification that looks at writers and directors as well as complex female characters who are large contributors to the story.
More than 40 film festivals and individual cinemas have already adopted the rating, and now film information site IMDb is taking it on as well.
Films like Kung Fu Panda 2, The Girl on the Train, Freaky Friday, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes along with more than 21,800 films have already included by the site and applied F-Rating.
Films that head up the triple F-rating is Frozen, American Honey and Bridget Jones's Baby.
