You Can Watch Anita Sarkeesian’s XOXO Talk In Its Entirety Right Here

Listen. Believe.

[Trigger warning for rape threats and harassment.] Last month games critic Anita Sarkeesian spoke at Portland’s XOXO Festival about the Internet’s enduring culture of misogyny and how to support women online. XOXO has now posted the speech in full, and in spite of the almost overwhelmingly upsetting subject matter, this is still one of the funniest and most hopeful responses to online harassment that I’ve ever seen.

Most importantly, for anyone wondering how to help support people facing similar abuse online, Sarkeesian shares what she’s learned first hand: “one of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences.”
