Anita Sarkeesian and Feminist Frequency

In our post Anita Sarkeesian and Tropes vs. Women in Gaming, the discussion revolves around the first Kickstarter campaign for Anita's video series and the harassment of Anita that followed.

Feminist Frequency is both a video series and a non-profit organization founded in 2009 by Anita Sarkeesian. Seeing as the Tropes vs Women in Gaming series has concluded, this post will attempt to chronicle the current and future endeavors of Feminist Frequency as well as responses and commentary surrounding the organization.

On January 23, 2015, Feminist Frequency released their inaugural report, free to be viewed by the public in PDF format.

In April 2015, it was announced that Anita Sarkeesian made the Time 100 as "gaming's feminist advocate" under the Pioneers category.

Two New Video Series Announced

One of the plans listed in this report included two new video series to be focused on masculinity in video games and positive female characters.

Positive Female Characters

Changing pace from her original series that discussed misrepresentation of women in video games, Anita has taken a more positive spin with the new series focusing on positive and strong female characters.
