We shine a light on the work of #WomenInTheatre by tweeting and blogging about Bechdel test passing plays, female-led performances and companies, gender-blind or balanced and diverse casting, and stage shows featuring characters and actors too often absent or sidelined from the spotlight (including BAME/POC, LGBTQ+, D/deaf, disabled, plus-sized/fat, working-class, and older generations).

We host a podcast aimed at anyone interested in theatre and/or feminism, with interviews, show reviews and previews, and discussion about gender and diversity across all art forms and pop culture.

We facilitate conversations about representation on stage and in life, by hosting relaxed and open feminism-focused conversations in theatre bars.

We support and inspire theatre-makers to make new shows based on voices that we recognise from real life, but are often absent or sidelined on stage, with our creative project Bechdel Testing Life.

Help us pay for:
  • Upkeep and expansion of our website and building of our online community.
  • Space, time and equipment to record our podcast.
  • Time and space to hold conversations and showcase new work.
  • Printing of stickers, programmes and flyers, promoting both our own events and other people's shows.

We use social media to help audiences find stage shows that represent women. Staying visible uses a fair bit of data and web space.

Get us out of town! 


We Bechdel test theatre all over the place. Help us travel to other towns and arts festivals to see new and touring shows, so we're not just talking about what's on in London.


We'll upload exclusive videos & voice messages with hot tips on shows to see, for all our #FeministFaves.

Goals
$60 of $1,000 per month
We're working towards increasing and widening our presence across the UK.
We'd like to see more touring shows, and attend all major theatre and arts festivals to seek out and support a wide range of Bechdel-friendly performing arts and help feminist audiences find shows that are playing a part in improving representation.
