In her new exhibit,  A Woman’s Room OnlineArtist Amy Roth Davis turned misogynistic messages, rape and death threats sent to women online into sculptures. 

The title of the show is meant, in part, to reference a feminist art installation created in 1972 called, Womanhouse. Womanhouse was organized by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro, co-founders of the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) Feminist Art Program. In that exhibit, an entire house was taken over by a group of feminist women artists and each room became an installation art or performance space.”

Roth took an office space and transformed it i order to “show the viewer what it can feel like to be targeted in your place of work, over multiple years with aggressive online stalking and harassment.”

I, and many, many others contributed messages that we’ve received. Thank you, Amy,

Feminist gamer Anita Sarkeesian’s fight against online threats just earned her a standing ovation 

"One of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences," feminist gamer Anita Sarkeesian told the XOXO Festival audience in Portland earlier this week.

Sarkeesian made her first public appearance since threats against the activist and her family drove her into hiding last month. The creator and face of a popular Web series, Feminist Frequency’s Tropes vs. Women, Sarkeesian tackles the use and abuse of women in video games. And all too often, she has found herself the victim of that same kind of abuse. 

Hating her became a viral meme
