AKA our guerilla-girl inspired feminist stickering campaign.
Since 2016, we’ve plastered “this show passes the Bechdel test” stickers onto posters at festivals such as Edinburgh Fringe, VAULT Festival and Brighton Fringe.
Designed to counteract the extremely biased and competition-driven role of traditional “star ratings” pasted onto show posters, our stickers exist to highlight shows that don’t centre the experiences of cis men - our stickers pass no judgement on the quality of the work.
We encourage all audiences to consider whose voices are being centred in the shows they choose to see (how many are male, cis, straight, white, non-disabled, middle or upper-class?).
We want everyone to feel better informed, and able to wield their ticket-buying power in support of marginalised artists!
