First Published      Last Updated Oct 17 2014 09:54 am

Violent threats against Anita Sarkeesian, a feminist critic of video games, point to a wider conversation about misogyny in gamer culture and freedom of speech on campus.

On Thursday at 12:15 p.m., Ann Austin of Utah State University's Center for Women and Gender, University of Utah Game Design director Roger Altizer and BYU cybersecurity student and hard-core gamer Laura Wilkinson join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to discuss sexism, video games and the so-called #Gamergate mind-set.
