Using Children's movies to teach chivalry and respect

Whether you're a parent, a writer or an artist this talk looks at the role of women in children's entertainment. It explore positive role models, the lessons of chivalry and respect that are taught to both boys and girls. Worth a watch.

If nothing else I hope this draws more attention to the Bechdel Test for entertainment:

1. It has to have at least two [named] women in it
2. Who talk to each other
3. About something besides a man

It's sad how few films released today reach these very simple criteria.
