Sri Lanka: Sex, Women, Gaming and Peacebuilding

ICT for Peacebuilding has a post on women, peacebuilding and the image of women in gaming; pointing to some studies – “Ultimately, I think a lot of studies done on the effects of computer game violence simplify the complex matrix of factors and actors that shape our approach to conflict in real life. That women like less violent games don’t necessarily make them inherently better peacebuilders, a proposition as ridiculous as stating that men, given their propensity for violence, are less capable as peacebuilders than women.”
