Feminism in Play is part of a larger series called “Palgrave: Games in Context” and is part of a trilogy wth amazing books Masculinities in Play and Queerness in Play. All three books contain contributions from game scholars across the spectrum of genders and sexualities who all bring unique cutting edge perspectives on gender and games to the trilogy. You can buy all three books from Amazon, Chapters, or directly from the Palgrave website.

“Feminism in Play focuses on women as they are depicted in video games, as participants in games culture, and as contributors to the games industry. This volume showcases women’s resistance to the norms of games culture, as well as women’s play and creative practices both in and around the games industry. Contributors analyze the interconnections between games and the broader societal and structural issues impeding the successful inclusion of women in games and games culture. In offering this framework, this volume provides a platform to the silenced and marginalized, offering counter-narratives to the post-racial and post-gendered fantasies that so often obscure the violent context of production and consumption of games culture.”
