The editors of this book pay homage to the legacy of From Barbie to Mortal Kombat while providing ample evidence that, even ten years later, there remains significant gender inequity in the gaming world, necessitating changes from within and outside of the industry. The insights contained in this volume might be a catalyst for such changes.(Jessica L. Ghilani, University of Pittsburgh Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society)
