Xbox MVP Trina Schwimmer was listed on Fast Company magazine's "Most Influential Women in Technology 2010." They wrote:
GamingAngels, the brainchild of self-professed geek Trina Schwimmer, seeks to provide a gender-neutral oasis in the hypermasculine field of gaming. Upset with gaming magazines' token female editors -- if there were any women at all -- and the sneers with which the gaming press seemed to regard female gamers, Schwimmer started GamingAngels in 2003. Originally a cosplay site, it quickly blossomed into a place where women could discuss all things geek, from gaming to gadgets to comics.
Congrats Trina ! Great Work !!
Although, I've known of quite a few female geeks and gamers out there. They always seem to kick my butt at games, too!
I believe that a lot of times the "experts" say that there isn't a lot of female gamers, so they try and develop female only type games and come up with Barbie, Littlest Pet Shop, etc.. What they don't understand is that a lot of girls love to play Halo, Left 4 Dead, Guitar Hero, and RPG's.
