Anita Sarkeesian's TED Talk

This summer, Ms. Sarkeesian began a project to examine female stereotypes in video games.  Immature (yet, sadly mostly adult) gamers objected and began a campaign of misogynistic and detestable harassment.  She was subjected to terrible abuse just for attempting to examine how women are portrayed in video games.   In spite of well coordinated and vicious attacks this brave woman did not stop her video project and her voice, far from falling silent, speaks clearly and forcefully in this great TED talk.
