Need a recap while you lounge this sunny Sunday? Got you covered. We kicked this week off with Kayla’s personal journey building self-confidence through games, then we showcased Julia’s incredible fanart including GTA V and Bully. Mondays raising your blood pressure? You should check out Rem’s take on the concept of necessary inclusive violence in games. Katie’s also back with another convention recap, although this time, she has a very important message about HavenCon. Ruth interviewed the creator of Melancholy Republic, a new JRPG currently up on Kickstarter (alert: they have lesbians). And finally, for those of you eagerly awaiting the next Game of Thrones episode tonight, I dropped the second part in my women in Telltale’s Westeros series.

Be as loud as you want to be and think deeply about why so many people want you to lower your voice. #ToTheGirls

#tothegirls the world will try to convince you to fight other girls to get the one spot, the "top girl." No. Join forces with other girls.

as a campaign rooted in the silencing of women, you prove that you're someone she can't share her story with because you won't believe her.

Equality & diversity are ACTIVE efforts. Efforts that WILL inconvenience ppl whose actions & opinions are antagonistic towards that effort.

Women in tech don’t need words, we need action. Hire us, promote us, include us. It’s easy to tell who’s just talk and who gets it done.

It's not about adding diversity for the sake of diversity, it's about subtracting homogeneity for the sake of realism.

Nature of the games audience, mebbe, but "I don't get this, I can't relate to it" is an irritatingly frequent response to our female writers

this is your daily reminder that even feminism has problems, we are all just striving to be the best we possible can.
