Trump, GamerGate, and Online Mobs
After the election of Donald Trump, I was asked by numerous media outlets to speak about Trump and GamerGate in the same breath. Initially, part of me wanted to reject the comparison as trite and absurd, along with the very notion that something that happened in a comparatively small industry could be held up alongside an […]

That’s why we spent the month of December sharing four actions to Amplify Your Involvement: Safety, Resources, Self-Care and Advocacy. These are just four ways […]
FemFreq Fave Five: Anita’s Picks for 2016

Sometimes it’s because we just don’t have time to review a particular work, and sometimes it’s simply that it doesn’t fall within the scope of what we […]
FemFreq Fave Five: Ashley’s Picks for 2016
What a daunting task: twelve months, five moments or makings, at least one or two reasons as to why each truly spoke to me. But, here we go and here they are (in no particular order). 1. Lady Dynamite It was one heck of a year for stand-up comedians, was it not? I’m talking about Maria Bamford, […]
FemFreq Fave Five: Ebony’s Picks for 2016
Composing year-end lists appeals to my desire for useless organization and my tendency toward capricious judgment.  Nevertheless, I started this project with a smug certainty that I had enjoyed absolutely nothing this year and I was going to retreat to the FemFreq bunker with my graham crackers and colored pencils. I still might.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review
Shortly before Rogue One was released, a clip of the late, great Carl Sagan discussing the original Star Wars made the rounds on social media. In it, Sagan noted the fact that the people who populated the fictional sci-fi setting of the film were almost entirely white. It is wonderful that, 39 years after the release […]
