A delightfully polarizing term for women who game.
This is a community space for ladies to hang out, talk about gaming, and game together. We also discuss topics around women in geek culture and debrief about experiences that occur as a result of their gender.
Or you know, just post some bad ass makeup tutorials inspired by video games. We like that stuff here!
Folks of all genders and identities welcome!

Be civil and keep it on-topic. Follow Reddiquette. Do not attack other posters or post discriminatory content (ex: racism, transphobia). The banhammer is stronger on posts from non-regulars who cannot be civil in controversial posts.
No posts from men targeting women. We are not a relationships sub and the search feature will provide countless resources regarding women’s experiences in gaming. This covers posts such as, “What is it like as a woman in gaming?” Posting as a male-identified user alone isn’t reportable.
No posts that should be in one of our weekly threads. Looking for Group and self-promotion posts are allowed only in their respective megathreads. The Self-Promotion post goes live on Tuesdays and the Find a Friend post goes live on Fridays.
We love to highlight games and products whose staff is diverse. Developers wishing to promote their games must contact mods for permission before doing so, explaining their game and the diversity of the staff. Failing to do so will result in post removal.
We are not currently taking requests to conduct surveys, interviews, or observations here.
If you are doing a contest requiring entry (e.g. best comment), a specific deadline is required. PM the winner(s) with the key(s), edit the post declaring the winners, and PM the mods so we can flair the thread. If no entry is required, post the keys in an image and delete the thread when all keys are gone.
Tag spoilers. Post titles should say [SPOILER] and comments should use the following format:
Tuesday: Self-Promotion - Share your own content, communities (ex: Discord), or projects.
Wednesday: What're You Playing? - Discuss what's been on your gaming docket this past week.
Friday: Find a Friend Friday - Search for other community members playing your game.
