Level Up! A Feminist Gaming Initiative

Level Up! provides a safe space for women and minority gamers to build community around feminist gaming while critically analyzing the media we love. During each meeting we will play games, discuss topics (like online toxicity, character development, gamer identity, and common tropes) and strategize how to make our community more inclusive.

Each meeting will start off with 45 minutes of social time, game playing, and current events. Followed by discussion of the days topic(s) and ways in which each of us can improve our community.

Fall meetings will be held on Mondays from 6-8 PM in the Women's Center.
