I’m a bit of a gamer myself, so sexism in the gaming industry is a topic that I feel passionate about. #1ReasonWhy is a Twitter hashtag for discussion about why there are so few female game designers. It works in a similar way to campaigns like “Who Needs Feminism?” and everydaysexism.com, by people submitting their personal experiences and opinions. There’s also a related hashtag, #1ReasonToBe, which encourages women to join the gaming industry by highlighting the positive side of being a game designer.
