Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

18 Mar

Anita Sarkeesian’s long-awaited video on sexism in video games came out last week and damn, was it good. Yes, the video runs a little long at 23 minutes, but it’s definitely worth a watch. It goes into great depth on the development of video games, the kinds of stories they tell, and how this all relates to gender equality. I’d also suggest watching other Feminist Frequency videos, they’re a great primer on sexism in popular culture.
