Rate this:
Discrimination in the gamer community is rampant, as evidenced by the recent GamerGate controversy. Though females make up 45 percent of all gamers, nearly 90 percent of all game designers are male. This has resulted in troubling portrayals of women in the games, which can leave lasting impressions on young people playing them. Even more serious is the abuse women face in gamer communities and as professionals in the industry. This timely resource will help teens make sense of the issues facing them when they participate in video game culture.
