Space Invaders: The Fight for a More Inclusive Gaming Industry

From the earliest days of video arcades to the most current home console hits, women have been treated as invaders in the male-dominated games industry; a reality that's reflected in games themselves, and in the surrounding culture. This talk examines the past and present of gaming to illuminate how some bold industry intruders have begun to change gaming culture for the better, and what we need to do to continue making video games the inclusive industry that it should be.

Anita Sarkeesian is an award-winning media critic and the creator and executive director of Feminist Frequency, a non-profit website that focuses on teaching critical media literacy through videos, podcasts, and long-form feminist analysis of politics and pop culture.

Open School is a sporadic lecture, workshop & seminar series organised by the department of Visual Communication / Graphic design & Illustration, Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm. Poster by Louise Khadjeh-Nassiri.
