You may have already of a lady named Anita Sarkeesian who wanted to make a video series about the five major negative tropes featuring women in video games. She got some serious hate from some misogynist for being a woman with an opinion. After several months, the first part has been released: Damsel in Distress.
Part 2 was released on May 28.
Part 3 was released on August 1..
I thought the video was very insightful in highlighting things in our society that some people may overlook.
