The Sphinx Test emerged from a series of conversation with writers and directors about establishing a strategy for exploring and expanding women’s stage roles. The Female Protagonist had been a subject of discussion over many Glass Ceilings and Vamps and Vixens conferences, and Sphinx Associate Rosalind Philips, prompted by the Bechdel Test, undertook to develop a playwright’s tool.

The Sphinx Test is a result of many hours of cultural analysis.  We hope you find it useful!
