Romances have often been accused of being too dude-focused, meaning that the women in romance novels are only concerned about men and finding love. That’s actually so far from the truth it’s laughable. There are in fact plenty of romances that can easily pass the Bechdel test. And for those of you who don’t know, the Bechdel test is a measure of how women are portrayed. It usually applied to movies, but works pretty well for novels, too. In order to pass, a book needs to have 2 named female characters that carry on a conversation (however long) about something other than a man. These are just a few of our favorites.
