ANITA SARKEESIAN IS a feminist who critically explores the roles of women in pop culture.
She has recently taken to producing videos on the tropes that depict women in video games on her Feminist Frequency site.
Her criticism of some of the biggest games of the last five years drew her the ire of a portion of Twitter users.Source: feministfrequency/YouTube
That ire spilled beyond the realm of online when Anita and her family were forced to leave their home after what she called “scary threats”.
She went on to say that her family were safe, but tweeted examples of the abuse she has received.
Sarkeesian was supported by Hollywood heavyweight and Avengers director Joss Whedon.
