Jules is one of the leading voices for raising awareness for women's treatment within the gaming community (a previously notoriously toxic and dangerous environment for women) which led them to create a blog called Misogyny Monday to call out some of the more disgusting comments that they would receive and turn it into something positive. 

The popularity of that blog led to them being invited to Canada to do a TEDx talk on sexism which was performed to a crowd of over 1300 people and was simultaneously the best/most challenging experience of their life. (If you'd like to watch it in full, click on the REELS tab and scroll across.)
