Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of the award-winning Tropes vs Women in Video Games, a critically acclaimed video series exploring the history of women’s representation in gaming that has garnered nearly 14 million views on YouTube alone. Her work as a media critic, public speaker, and producer who thrives at the intersection of digital culture, accessibility, and social justice helped create a new lexicon and sparked a paradigm-shifting conversation about improving the representations of marginalized people in video games. She has been featured in The New Yorker, on Good Morning America, and The Colbert Report as well as being named one of TIME 100's Most Influential People. Her most recent initiative is the Games and Online Harassment Hotline; a text message based, confidential emotional support hotline for people who make and play games.
