Tea and bed, after a night of minecraft....

I am woman .... Hear me roar.

Or so the saying goes.

And try as we might roar, when it comes to gaming often it is like we live inside a glass bubble, all shiny, and blingy and pretty.... One that we haven't created for ourselves.

Girl gaming is not new, and it is not about to die out. So why then is the gaming community so dominated by men?

I like what Anita Sarkeesian has to say in the link below.

I don't call myself a feminist, as I prefer the term equalist. I want the same freedoms, and rights for all genders. I like men, I like women (I am hetrosexual, if that matters at all). And I believe that human rights, should be without gender. For example dads raising kids should be just as cherished as mums, and neither should be looked down upon for there gender.

However as the pendulum swings, I find that in order to restore some balance to the world, I have what you would consider feminist tendencies that I also apply to men ;) Confused much?

I hope you enjoy the video, and that you are challenged to celebrate who you are as a gamer, regardless of gender.

But, I do hope your eyes are opened to the video game market, and how women really do deserve to be the heroines of their own lives.... I mean games (there the same things right?)

Bless you
