Feminist Frequency looks further into tropes vs women in video games

Tropes Vs Women Women As Background Decoration Part Two

Anita Sarkeesian's Feminist Frequency channel has posted the second part to its look at women as background decoration in video games.

A couple of months ago the Feminist Frequency YouTube channel posted the first part to its look at woman as background decoration in video games, and now the second part has been uploaded.

When we brought you the first part I had not long started to watch Anita's videos about the portrayal of women in video games. Since watching all of them, I now have a better understanding and appreciation for the subject, and recommend you watch the content if you've never seen it before.

In the second part of Women as Background Decoration below, Anita looks at how female bodies are frequently used in 'dual roles as both sexual playthings and the perpetual victims of male violence.'

Obviously this video contains some strong scenes of violence, so viewer discretion is advised.
