Hosted by

Feminist Anita Sarkeesian was scheduled to give a speech at the University of Utah this week on misogyny in video games. But the talk never happened. The school had received multiple threats on Sarkeesian’s life, and she cancelled the event after learning there were no plans to increase campus security. We hear about how the incident fit into a bigger harassment campaign known as “Gamergate.”
