Bechdel Test...Wednesday?

Whoops, I didn't post my meme yesterday! Alright, well I don't have much time so here goes...if you don't know about the Bechdel Test, here's a handy dandy link: click on me!

Sorry I didn't do this last week but I was busy getting ready for my Giveaway. Haven't entered yet? Don't worry, there's still time but just one more week :) Did everyone read my Bechdel Test of The Road that I posted 2 weeks ago like good little followers? Good.

Moving on...

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
1. Does it have at least 2 women in it?
Um duh, yes! It's a book entitled LITTLE WOMEN!
2. Do they talk to each other?
Constantly!
3. About something besides a man?
Why of course!
It would be a sad state of affairs if this delightful novel, one of my favorites growing up, that was full of women didn't have a single scene where they didn't talk of men. But don't worry readers, it consists of several! What a fantastic book! Must re-read it someday in the near future...

Tune in next week...and I'm off!

Weren't you the one that requested this the other week? That's why I used it for the test :)

Hahaha yes I was!
My daughter and I were just talking about this book. Her high school did this play (years ago) so it is a favorite of hers as well. We would both like to re-read it sometime.

Haha, nice to see a book pass the test with flying colors! Even if it was expected to :)

Love this! Now, I wonder if my other Alcott favorite, Eight Cousins, would pass?

Wow! I've never even heard of "Eight Cousins" I'll have to look into that one.
Thanks Audra!

@Wall-to-wall books: I just loved it so much when I was a kid -- more than Little Women, I think! It doesn't stand up on reread as an adult, for me at least, but I'm so sentimental about it -- if you do a read, I'd love to hear what you think!

Jo March...is my hero. However, it was only when I grew older did I realize why she didn't marry Laurie.
