Newsweek – A feminist group says it’s not a coincidence that women in game development are disproportionately represented in the “games industry.”
“This is a real problem in the games industry and it is a problem that we have to work to fix,” said Anita Sarkeesian, the creator of Feminist Frequency.
“It is a question of fairness.
This is a serious issue.”
Sarkeesian says there are a number of women in tech who are doing “unethical” things in the video game industry.
She says a lack of diversity in the industry has been one of the primary factors behind this issue.
“We are going to have to do a better job of making sure that we do not have these women in positions of power,” she said.
“These are people who are making decisions that have a real impact on the lives of women and girls.
We can’t allow ourselves to continue down this path.”
Women in the tech industry make up a disproportionate share of developers in the US, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center.
The study found that more than 20 percent of developers are women.
Sarasky said that the industry’s culture is “in a state of constant upheaval” that is “causing many women to feel uncomfortable in the workplace.”
The company also announced plans to hire more women in its senior leadership team.
“Our aim is to make sure that our company is more inclusive and that we are better positioned to attract and retain women in our industry,” said a statement from the company.
