The Full Story Test [...]

Related to the Bechdel Test, the Full Story Test asks three questions of news media content:

1. Are our content priorities committing us to be more inclusive and to tell stories that aren’t being told? 2. Are we tracking the diversity of staff, leadership and our board? How do we measure up? 3. Do we regularly measure the diversity of bylines and sources? Do we have goals?

It involves looking at the race and gender of bylines and sources. Do women of color, for example, only appear in stories about race and gender?

This "Bechdel test for news" was proposed by PRI's Alisa Miller.
