Hot Topics Dialogues – #GamerGate: Sexism, Racism, and Gamer Culture

As a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the Women’s Resources Center at the University of Illinois recent put on a panel on #GamerGate.  In this dialogue, we discussed #GamerGate, or what can be described as an internet culture war over inclusion and diversity within gaming and gamer culture and its relationship to feminism.  The back and forth between the panelists (who came from all corners of the university and the community) was extremely illuminating and I’m so proud to have been a part of such a great event!  Featured panelists pictured here include: Allison Martell, myself, Tanya Koslowski, and Irenka Carney.
