Feminist Frequency is a web video project by Anita Sarkeesian. It is a blog and a series of videos about feminist topics. Sarkeesian is presently working full time to produce videos outlining tropes about women in computer gaming.

In 2012, Sarkeesian raised nearly $159000 to fund her her video gaming tropes project, via a Kickstarter campaign called "Tropes vs. Women in Video Games", also known as the "Feminist Frequency Kickstarter". Sarkeesian's Kickstarter attracted widespread harassment including portrayals of physical violence against her.

The Feminist Frequency Tropes vs women in video games videos to date are: Damsel in distress; Damsel in distress part 2; Damsel in distress part 3; and Ms. male character.
