Lots of great articles, guides, etc. have come out again recently and so instead of trying to push out each individual one I thought I’d pull them altogether in another post to share in one. If you’re at all interested in creating more diversity in the workforce, speaking out against Harassment, or learning more about GamerGate and its horrible effects for women in games and the view of the game industry in the public in general (hint: its not good) there’s something below for you.

Read at your own risk, ignore the comments if you can, hopefully the need to have regular drops of links like this (and this is just a fraction of the links that’s come my way) will slow down for these topics or get happier. Here goes:
