Didn’t expect a double post in one day, did you? Surprise! It’s (still) International Women’s Day, and I’m super hyped about it. You’ll deal. Haters to the comment section.
Now that GDC is over and PAX East is set to wind down tonight, women in games are still experiencing harassment in these high profile public forums. What gives? Even so, the rallying cry is louder than ever before, particularly after the 1ReasonToBe panel at GDC set a hashtag in motion that would inspire more voices to speak out.
Here’s our roundup of all the tweets from women and our supporters pushing for the change we so desperately need. Don’t forget to thank them for all that they do in this fight!
You can’t be neutral on a moving train. @femfreq just now at the Opera House. So good to hear her speak.
