Overview: It's been ten years since the announcement of the industry-shaking Tropes vs Women in Video Games web series, exploring women's representation in gaming. After more than 14 million views, critical acclaim, awards, and endless abuse and harassment, what did it all mean? In this talk, creator and host Anita Sarkeesian will look back on the project, the process, and the impact it had on the games industry. Looking at the changes that have happened in the intervening years and looking forward to the changes that still need to be made, she aims to answer the very loaded question, "Where do we go from here??".
