Anita Sarkeesian – Entering a gendered minefield

Over a hundred guests came to listen to Anita Sarkeesian yesterday in the auditorium of Umeå School of Architecture. Anita mainly spoke about her project “Tropes vs Women” and its results so far. She also showed a few pieces of, and discussed, the huge online harassment storm that she faced earlier this spring.

The talk gave insight in the misogynous structures of the gaming culture as well as pointed out more subversive examples. We’re looking forward to follow Anita Sarkeesians work and hopefully this is the dawn of a more interesting game culture that lies ahead…

InfoTech was there, read their thoughts (Swedish)
