It seems that whenever women on the internet dare to speak about social issues they are met with violent, aggressive and often invasive attacks. Because of her work on women in games, Anita Sarkeesian has become the ongoing target of a large scale vicious harassment campaign. In this talk, she will share her experiences to help understand, define and deconstruct how these hostile cyber mobs operate and offer some insights into why gendered harassment is so prevalent in gaming spaces and communities.

Please note that bags, purses, and backpacks will not be allowed inside the ballroom. A coat check will be available.
