NEWS: Damsel in Distress: Tropes vs. Women in video games

tropes

Damsel in Distress is an extremely well written and researched (if somewhat one-sided) documentary about the portrayal of women in video games. Journalist¬†Anita Sarkeesian (with Feminist Frequency) examines a variety of portrayals, from passive (Pauline, in Donkey Kong) to violent (God of War’s many…ladies).

It’s insightful, clever and could be alarming to those of you with children. So, give it a look, with an open mind!
