Women Gamers - Fact or Fiction?

FACT!! Women are becoming more prevalent in online gaming, making up 37% of total gamers (Fraser et al, 2007). Even though women are on the scene, the gaming industry is not exactly accepting or welcoming to women. Check out to see a fraction of the abuse women endure while playing a game online. 

While men are sexually harassing women by asking to see their boobs, and calling them bitches, they defend their behaviour by saying that this behaviour is “just stupid guys”, and that “as a female you can not get upset… it is like going to a strip club and being upset there are naked girls” (BBC, 2012).
