Women and online gaming

MASON CITY, Iowa- The world of gaming is growing and becoming more popular. Colleges in Chicago are even picking up competitive gaming as a sport.

However, some women say that they are still having a hard time fitting into the gaming world, which is dominated by male players.

One local video game streamer says she has seen several female streamers being harassed.

“There are some girls that are really adamant about gaming,” Ashley Kammeyer says. “It is what they want to do, and they work really hard at it just to be shot down because they are a girl.”

Kammeyer also says that the female gamers will one day have an easier time playing.
