Women Warriors: Female Bodies & Identities Fighting in RPGs

Women who combat LARP or play warrior characters at the table talk about their strategies for entering what is often a male-dominated space and how to be badass and a woman at the same time. We will talk about thwarting stereotypes, embracing the female body and sexuality while not becoming sexually objectified, countering prejudice in a game’s artwork and emergent play, and how to embrace your inner warrior, no matter your skills or body type.
