Women in gaming, and the issues they face, is something I wanted to discuss the moment I decided to do this podcast series.
Now I will make it very clear that MANY women do not face any issues at all and I consider those women to blessed and lucky because I dare say it is likely that just as many do be it RPGs, Wargames, Video Games, CCGs, and even current Board Gaming to some degree etc.
So in this episode I will discuss my history of my awareness of these issues, my more recent attempts at getting the discussion of it started, stories of some women I have spoken too, and why I am so behind dealing with this.
If nothing else I hope to open the eyes of some and make everyone more aware in their local gaming circles even if they think there is not an issue locally.
Also below is a number of links worth reading/watching etc that were the same ones I shared recently and further back in the past.
