I hope this post doesn't come across as woefully ignorant, but I'm writing a first-person story from the perspective of a male. I noticed recently that my writing has been historically male-centric, and that's something I want to improve on. I think passing the Bechdel test is important for any piece of modern fiction, but I'm struggling to do that with a first-person male narrator. I was wondering if there are any ideas or suggestions for incorporating multiple female characters who don't talk exclusively to males or about males in a novel told from the perspective of a male.

Thanks!
