In honour of World Social Media Day, I chose to write a post about one of my favourte social media users, Anita Sarkeesian. Sarkeesian is an American-Canadian media critic, educated in Communicatins and Social and Political Thought and founder of Feminist Frequency (FF). FF is “a video web series that primarily explores representations of women in pop culture such as TV shows, movies, comic books and video games. Mainstream popular culture has become, for better or worse, our dominant form of storytelling especially in Western cultures and these stories do have a profound influence on our lives, perceptions, values and belief systems…” says Sarkeesian, on the FF website.
