Hello, I am currently researching a report on the "iconographic representation of women in video games" and was wondering if you could put me in touch with some relevant sites, and or pass on some relevant information you may have. The report is not necessarily just limited to the iconography used in the video games, but also covering the players and public concerns relating to the games. Notable examples, being the "Tomb Raider" series and similar games.

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer, Fraser


Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. Unfortunately, I'm not the right person to answer it since I left off video games with Space Invaders and Donkey Kong. I recommend that you look at J.C Herz's book Joystick Nation. Also, the work of Pam Nelson who created Girl Press and other women who work specfically in this field. There is also a site called Girl Games. Good luck - Amy
