Anyone looking to support women suffering from harassment online has a surprisingly simple place to start, says Anita Sarkeesian, founder of the web video series Feminist Frequency. One of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences, Sarkeesian told the audience today at XOXO Festival in Portland. Its radical in part because of misinformation campaigns organized against high-profile women that accuse them of making up the threats against them — and its an issue that Sarkeesian has recent experience dealing with. It generated a flood of insults and violent threats against Sarkeesian from gamers who are threatened by her calls for more equal treatment of the sexes in their depictions in popular culture.
