Mujeres en los videojuegos

por Pedro Jorge Romero el 08/06/2012

Otro proyecto interesante de Kickstarter. Anita Sarkeesian (del excelente blog Feminist Frequency) se propone realizar una serie de vídeos sobre la representación de la mujer en los videojuegos (que es incluso peor en los cómics). El proyecto es Tropes vs. Women in Video Games y lo describe de esta forma:

I love playing video games but I’m regularly disappointed in the limited and limiting ways women are represented. This video project will explore, analyze and deconstruct some of the most common tropes and stereotypes of female characters in games. The series will highlight the larger reoccurring patterns and conventions used within the gaming industry rather than just focusing on the worst offenders. I’m going to need your help to make it happen!

As a gamer, a pop culture critic and a fan, I’m always working to balance my enjoyment of media while simultaneously being critical of problematic gender representations. With my video web series Feminist Frequency, I look at the way women are portrayed in mass media and the impact they have on our culture and society.

Y aquí está el vídeo de presentación:

Como ya se ha superado con creces el mínimo de financiación (a falta de 7 días), su plan es producir más vídeos de los inicialmente previstos.
