Do little girls get enough role models? Gender bias at an early age: Bechdel test score of animation pictures released in the last 4 years.

Passing the Bechdel test doesn't necessarily imply that a movie presents strong female characters and a gender balanced reality. However it is interesting to realize that many of the movies targeted at children often lack to portray female characters - let alone girl protagonists. The Bechdel test scores for animation movies actually differ only little (and in worse) than the passing rate for all movies released between 2010-2014, which is 64%. About 40% of the animation features of the last years fail the Bechdel test.
