The Ohio University Center for Law, Justice & Culture presents Anita Sarkeesian on “Privacy and Sexual Harassment in the Digital Age” on Thursday, March 13, at 5 p.m. in Baker Theater. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Sarkeesian is a feminist media critic well known for her work on privacy, harassment, and technology relating to gender and sexuality. She is the creator of Feminist Frequency, a video web series that explores representations of women in pop culture.
Sarkeesian was the target of online harassment and intimidation after she initiated a Kickstarter campaign to study the representation of women in video games. She then turned her experience into an opportunity to further educate. Learn more about her in her TEDx talk.
Sarkeesian’s visit is sponsored by two College of Arts & Sciences themes—Between Love and Hate and Making and Breaking the Law—as well as the Office of Student Affairs; Students for Law, Justice & Culture: and the departments of Political Science; Sociology & Anthropology; and Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies.
