Feminism 101 – Feminist Frequency

Feminism 101

Feminist Frequency, as our name implies, utilizes a specifically feminist approach in our critical analysis of pop culture. However, the term feminism can be confusing as there are multiple viewpoints on its definition as well a lot of misinformation about its meaning.

In order to help offer a primer on feminism, we’ve complied a summary of definitions and resources for folks who want to learn more. We don’t claim to represent the beliefs of each individual, self-identified feminist, and we don’t want to. We also recognize that, because feminism is about learning and growing, resources about feminism must allow for and encourage such growth. As such, we hope this page will be used to help build a scaffold of understanding from which conversations can move forward.

We have divided these resources up into multiple categories:



What do representations of gender and race in major motion pictures, hit television series and video games have to do with the current social and political climate?

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

Like all of Feminist Frequency’s work, our new show is completely free to the public.

You can help us make sure it stays that way.


Feminist Frequency analyzes the connections between popular culture, the current political climate, and societal issues such as gender, race, and sexuality.

You can help us speak out against the normalization of sexual assault and harassment, racism and bigotry, and advocate for more inclusive media. All of our work is completely free and available to anyone with an internet connect.

We rely on contributions from people like you to keep it that way.
