Saluting Female Video Game Pioneers
Awesome article in The New York Times shining the spotlight on some amazing women involved in video games going back to the 70's.
As a girl and a gamer seeing woman in the industry, especially women connected to famous games like Portal, is really important and inspiring. While the world of video games is by no means exclusive to women these days, there is no resource that really honors their contributions, or compiles and shares the affect that they have had. There is still a biased idea that women don't belong, even when they clearly do! 22% of the video game industry is now women, a huge increase from five years ago, and that will continue to grow.
And so, I hope, will the amazing games that we see out of this change!
