This insightful and celebratory book highlights women who helped to establish the industry, women who disrupted it, women who fight to diversify it, and young women who will someday lead it.

Featuring household names and unsung heroes, such as Ashly Burch, Karisma Williams, and Emily Greer, each individual profiled is a pioneer in their own right.

Women in Gaming: 100 Pioneers of Play also features penned essays that further illuminate topics affecting women in gaming-related careers, including short essays covering various topics affecting women in gaming related careers, including “Difficult Women: The Importance of Female Characters Who Go Beyond Being Strong,” “NPC: On Being Unseen in the Game Dev Community,” and “Motherhood and Gaming: How Motherhood Can Help Rather Than Hinder a Career” and more.
