Feminist Frequency’s The FREQ Show a Wonderful Antidote to the Current Sociopolitical Climate
We are in desperate need of an antidote to the times in which we live. Thankfully, the folks at Feminist Frequency are providing one with their all-new series (and follow-up to the recently-ended Tropes Vs. Women in Video Games) The FREQ Show. The first episode, “Whitewashing,” was released this week, and you can check it out above!
Hosted by Feminist Frequency founder, Anita Sarkeesian, the series aims to answer the question, “What do representations of race, gender and sexuality in pop culture have to do with our current social and political climate?”
The FREQ Show’s premiere episode focuses on Hollywood’s history of whitewashing (which we’ve talked about a lot around here), ranging from the earliest days of cinema when the practice was more blatant and obvious, to its more subtle but no less racist modern-day manifestations.
Feminist Frequency has put together a four-episode “Season Zero,” which will be releasing throughout May and June. Like all of Feminist Frequency’s programming, the series will be freely available without ads on their YouTube channel.
