This is why we need women writers and creators. This is why I’m so desperate to get more women into creative roles in the games industry. There are some experiences that women simply have greater insight into than men do. Of course men can write female characters—and some do it very well. And of course some women don’t understand characters like Wonder Woman at all. But women know the pressures unique to being female in our society, and they know authentic reactions to those pressures. They can look at a man-hating Wonder Woman and recognize that it feels contrived. They understand that feminism isn’t who you are, it’s a way of reacting to the unfairness of the world.
