2015’s TIME 100 Most Influential People in the World – Feminist Frequency

2015’s TIME 100 Most Influential People in the World

April 16, 2015

Anita Sarkeesian TIME 100

TIME magazine has named Feminist Frequency’s Anita Sarkeesian to the 2015 TIME 100, its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

“I appreciate the honor of being included in the TIME 100. It’s gratifying to see Feminist Frequency’s educational media criticism work recognized in this way,” Sarkeesian said of the distinction. “I’m encouraged that our video series on the portrayal of women in video games is starting to have a tangible impact on the gaming industry at large. This honor also highlights the importance of cultural and media criticism in promoting gender equity.”

Feminist Frequency is a not-for-profit, educational organization providing comprehensive analyses of modern media from a critical perspective on societal issues such as race, gender, and sexuality. Creating publicly available and ad-free videos, Feminist Frequency encourages viewers to critically engage with mass media and provides resources for media makers to improve their works of fiction.

The full list and related tributes appear in the April 27 issue of TIME, available on newsstands and tablets on Friday, April 17, and now at time.com/time100.

Our newest videos analyze these connections by focusing on today’s most pressing social issues.
