I have FINALLY ranked all of #StarWars based on screen time for women. This is now canon. Don't @ me.

43% Last Jedi
37% Force Awakens
35% Rogue One
23% Return of the Jedi
22% Empire Strikes Back
20% Phantom Menace
18% Attack of the Clones
17% Revenge of the Sith
15% A New Hope
Obviously the list won't include #SoloAStarWarsStory until it's available to buy. I actually think it might score reasonably well, although it doesn't pass the Bechdel test (the other Disney films do BUT BARELY)
And OF COURSE I'm really sorry to score your fav A New Hope last, I really am, and I thought the prequels were awful too BUT @rianjohnson wins here for giving women almost equal screen time and TLJ passing the Bechdel test more than once. Them's the rules so...
Also if you want to know how long it took me to edit all the men out of Star Wars you're welcome to ask but you might be alarmed at my Star Wars/feminist nerdiness... so we can maybe keep that a secret
So this Star Wars women thing blew up (and you all @-ed me after all...) but seeing as lots of people have asked questions about the methodology, I've written a short explanation for you here

As a historian who has actually read letters and diaries and newspapers from the actual Second World War I can assure you that the notion that Britons were happy about being bombed, uprooted and watching people die is categorically untrue.
This tweet keeps popping up in my timeline and is making me cross so let me tell you a bit about all the ways that women and children were unhappy.
First of all, women had, by 1939, been educated to work as teachers, doctors, etc. The usually middle-class women afforded this kind of education had little prospect of a professional career when conscripted for factory work. They were understandably unhappy.
