Anita Sarkeesian is a young feminist who specializes on popular culture. Her site, Feminist Frequency, is filled with her videos where she analyzes movies, music, advertisements and other cultural phenomenon. In this video, “Women’s stories, movies and the Oscars”, she talks about how movies centered around men are more valued than female-centered films. She also points out that female-centered films are unfortunately very sexist as well, since they portray women one-dimensionally and shallow. I couldn’t agree more! Marvelous video and commentary, worth a watch!

Sarkeesian has also made a video where she criticizes Kanye West newest video, which is also very good and sharp. Watch it here.
