A Teenager Tackles Respect For Girl Gamers

Seventeen-year-old Jessica Cernadas is tired of the way she is treated online and games designed for men. She vents her frustrations in an NPR piece called "Why Do Girl Gamers Get So Little Respect?" Listen to it here.

Jessica's piece, part of a Radio Rookies program at NPR member station WNYC in New York, covers some of the common problems the increasingly large percentage of female gamers face as they delve into the 'men's club' of online gaming and suffer through games featuring over-sexualized female characters.

These are problems female gamers have been facing for years coming from a fresh voice and reaching a different audience through the broadcast on NPR.
