I wonder how they decided on those poses.

Good read ... article on the kick ass women of the 100.

Finally read it! I had heard of the Bechdel test before but not the other ones. I'm not surprised that the 100 passed them all though. I think what it does better than a lot of other shows/movies is it gives the audience multiple complex female characters. A lot of shows I feel like they give you one mandatory strong female character and then that's it.

Also the idea of a sexy lamp test is simultaneously funny and sad

Oh for sure. I had heard of the Bechdel and sexy lamp test but a lot of those are new to me and I love that the show hit the mark when it comes to all the tests. Like you said, some shows seem to do it to "check the box" in terms of female representation but you get all types of women on the show and they're racially diverse (though not as much as the men though, I have to say) and they don't have traditionally "feminine" jobs ... but it's never brought up because it's not uncommon in the world of the 100. They're tough/can kick your butts anyday and yet they cry/express their emotions regularly too, and I love that the show shows all aspects of these women like that.

I'm oblivious, so I didn't know ANY of those tests

Nice article, thanks for sharing Sarah

I love how the sexy lamp test states that there's not one woman in this show who does not pass this test.
I don't know if I quite agree with that (outside of the main cast, obviously )

Yup, maybe it's not so true for the female characters outside the main cast.

Thanks Sarah

When I think about it ... your list is better than mine because of the Abby ranking ... I think I have ranked her too high
