The inspiring women of video games in France – Feature




Like any cultural medium, video games tackle various themes, often related to our society, even in the most fantasy universes. This mirror of our humanity can only exist through the vision of creators, thanks to their creativity itself inspired by their experiences. However, today, the players in the gaming environment are not entirely representative of society, whether for gender, race, demography, cultural background or social background. In this series of interviews, we wanted to focus specifically on women in video games, who today represent only 15% of workers in the sector.

Do women come to see video games as a viable professional environment? If the question is not economic, the sector being stronger than ever, it is nonetheless important. The absence of many female faces in the media probably does not help young women, when studying their career plans, to get into the game. But who better than the actresses of the sector to explain their feelings to us?

Contrary to what some people may think, they have a lot of good things to say about their experiences and often consider the video game sector as a welcoming environment where the fact of being a woman has not prevented them from finding employment, even if they may have encountered some additional barriers. They tell us about their journey in this series of interviews carried out between the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.
