2013 Anita Sarkeesian spoke at The Conference about online harassment and more specifically the threats she is receiving for her work. It hasn’t gotten better. Therefore Anita will be back to do a keynote presentation about the bigger picture and why baby steps isn’t enough to achieve goals we believe are fundamental for society.
Anita is a media critic and the creator of Feminist Frequency, a video webseries that explores the representations of women in pop culture narratives. Her work focuses on deconstructing the stereotypes, patterns and tropes associated with women in popular culture as well as highlighting issues surrounding the targeted harassment of women in online and gaming spaces.
