»The F Word explores the portrayal of sexualized violence on the iconic TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Despite airing its last episode in 2003, Buffy remains a cultural icon. What we've learned from Buffy is not only is the show still hotly debated on pop culture sites including Buzzfeed and Pop Matters, but also explored in feminist media-making, including Bitch magazine and Jezebel.
Collective member Pragya Esh and Melanie Lintott, from Adamant Eve, a feminist radio program in Edmonton Alberta, focus on the Buffy episode, called Seeing Red, in which the vampire, Spike, attempts to rape the vampire slayer with whom he's been having an illicit sexual relationship.« (Source: The F Word)
