Anita Sarkeesian at TEDxWomen 2012

When Anita Sarkeesian proposed a Kickstarter project to deconstruct and examine female stereotypes in video gaming culture she was subjected to an horrific campaign of abuse and intimidation. In the video below she describes her ordeal and how she came to beat the mob and perform what must surely count as a very epic win.

She is one impressive woman! Go Anita!!!
