Anita Sarkeesian on The New Yorker Podcast – Feminist Frequency

Anita Sarkeesian on The New Yorker Podcast

June 24, 2016

Anita Sarkeesian visited downtown NYC to chat with The New Yorker editor David Remnick on the latest episode of New Yorker Radio Hour. The two discuss Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, the toll of harassment, and our upcoming series, Ordinary Women: Daring to Defy History. You can listen to the full interview below or on The New Yorker website.

“Anita Sarkeesian’s critiques of sexism in her Web series “Tropes vs. Women in Video Games” made her the victim of online harassment and threats from some in the gaming community, and a central figure of the Gamergate controversy of 2014. But Sarkeesian, who runs the Web site Feminist Frequency, hasn’t quit speaking out about sexism in the gaming world and beyond. She spoke with David Remnick about her new series, “Ordinary Women Daring to Defy History,” which tells the stories of neglected feminist heroes.”
