Join media critic Anita Sarkeesian as she discusses sexism in gaming, ranging from the portrayal of female characters in popular video games, to the culture of harassing and excluding women from gaming communities, particularly online. Sarkeesian’s talk also includes examples of games and communities that do get it right, and what we can learn from missteps and successes alike. Sarkeesian is the creator of Feminist Frequency, a video webseries that explores the representations of women in pop culture narratives and deconstructs the associated stereotypes and tropes.
