The worst online abusers of women aren't who you think they are.
It’s about damn time.
2016 is the year I have realized that the men on the other side of the window are not all religious or political conservatives. Many of them are liberal in their worldview and the champions of progressive causes.
A new video gets to the bottom of this.
We can't wait to see which women will be stepping forward to lead the way next year.
You can't ignore the latest video from GamerGate's biggest enemy.
Media is a mirror of how we see the world, and increasingly venues for experiencing that media seem to be the targets of individuals who would wage the culture war in a more literal fashion. It makes me afraid.

As head of a game development studio -- and as a human being -- I am appalled by the venom that is being spewed.
Sarkeesian has been speaking out about the treatment of women in video game culture for years, but it wasn't until recently
The malignant only threaten those who make inroads, who carve out spaces where they can be heard and can affect change, who realize their independent and collective power and wield it, from every dark corner into every dark corner.
