The Women’s Advocacy Council at UW Oshkosh presents Anita Sarkeesian (with co-sponsorship from the Women’s Center, Oshkosh Gaming Club, Pepsi Fund, Speakers Series and Residence Life).
“Anita Sarkeesia is a Canadian-American feminist, media critic and blogger. She is the author of the video blog “Feminist Frequency” and the video series Tropes vs. Women and Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, which examine tropes in the depiction of women in popular culture.
In 2012, Sarkeesian was targeted by an online harassment campaign following her launch of a Kickstarter project to fund the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games series. At the same time, supporters donated over $150,000 to the project, beyond the $6,000 amount sought. The situation drew media attention, placing Sarkeesian at the center of discussions about misogyny in video game culture and online harassment.”
