Calling all feminist gamers

The ever-industrious tekanji of the Official Shrub.com Blog, working in conjunction with revena, has launched The Iris Network in order to bring together women in the gaming community.

There's an online magazine, a blog directory, and - what I'm most excited about - forums where female and/or feminist gamers can meet and geek out together. Without having to worry about sexist harassment, without having feminist discussions silenced or harassed, and without being excluded from any boys' clubs.

(Oh, and "gamers" really does mean any kind of gamer - electronic, pencil and paper, or LARP. Me, I'm jazzed about the tabletop forums.)

The official site announcment is here. Go! Join!
