A new documentary will explore sexual harassment in the games industry

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

It's always been fairly common knowlege that games development, and gaming in general, is historically something of a boys club. I'm not certain, however, that any of us fully realize just how deep the industry's in-born sexism goes. Shannon Sun-Higginson certainly didn't until a year ago, when a friend guided her down the proverbial rabbit hole. 

New documentary to explore sexual harassment in the games industry

"I immediately began researching and filming the documentary," Higginson explains on her Kickstarter page. "Of course, not all gamers are trolls or abusers - many are kind, supportive, and equally disgusted by this type of behavior. But the fact remains that this is a real problem, and it's time the non-gaming public know about it." 

"The purpose of this documentary," she continued, "is to reveal the experiences of women in the gaming world, both good and bad, as well as to provide steps we can take to change the environment for the better. Nobody should have to endure being called a derogatory term simply because of their gender (or race, religion, or sexual orientation, for that matter.)"

You can check out the Kickstarter for the documentary, titled GTFOhere.
