“Ordinary Women: Daring to Defy History” is a collection of five mini-biographies of women who Sarkeesian says rejected convention in their time. They are: Murasaki Shikibu, the first modern novelist; Ada Lovelace, creator of the first computer program; Emma Goldman, a political revolutionary; Ching Shih, a pirate captain; and Ida B. Wells, a journalist and civil rights activist. A new episode will air on Sarkeesian’s YouTube channel each month through January 2016.  Read more…More about Youtube, Online Harassment, Gender Equality, Gender, and Women
