Feminist Frequency creator Anita Sarkeesian has been forced out of her home by online threats of sexual abuse and murder.

Some very scary threats have just been made against me and my family. Contacting authorities now.— Feminist Frequency (@femfreq) August 27, 2014
I’m safe. Authorities have been notified. Staying with friends tonight. I’m not giving up. But this harassment of women in tech must stop!— Feminist Frequency (@femfreq) August 27, 2014
