Great idea for a panel. These women talked about creating their girl gamer communities and how other businesses can use the same methods for success. These were grass roots endeavors, creating lots of buzz, and authenticity. The user community is very passionate, not to mention having something to prove in the male-dominated world of games. These women play all kinds of games, even the most violent. They are definitely experts in this area and forces with which to be reckoned.
I do wonder why Amy said she's not a feminist, but does believe in many feminist ideas. Then, what's a feminist? I know the word has a bad connotation, but shouldn't we call it what it is. If strong women like these do not want to be associated with the term, then we need to think of something else that will signify strength and equality for women, and not let the media taint it with images of bra-burning man-haters.
