    Default Female developers need to 'put themselves out there'

    Indie dev Quinn Dunki says industry gender problem starts at school

    An independent female developer has argued the way to tackle gender imbalance in the games industry is to change perceptions in school.

    In an interview with Develop, iPhone game developer Quinn Dunki claimed peer pressure at a young age is steering talented females away from jobs which are typically thought of as male roles.

    "The only difference between me and my maths-inclined, game-loving friend - who does advanced needlepoint instead of engineering - is that she succumbed to the peer pressure," Dunki told Develop.

    She argued that gender imbalance is a problem that is too big for the industry to solve all by itself: "The outreach needs to go down to the [early] school levels. That's where the research shows girls stop studying maths and science due to pressures from peers and other sources."

    Develop reports that 42 percent of all game players are women, according to recent ESA data, but it's believed that only one tenth of game developers are female.

    If efforts are made in schools now, Dunki thinks we will see results in the industry in a couple of generations. "In the meantime, the best thing we can do is provide role models. If you're a female engineer or scientist, put yourself out there," she added.

    Dunki's words echo those of LucasArts' creative director Chris Hocking, who said on Wednesday that the industry needs to attract more female workers and become a little less obsessed with fart jokes.

    'put yourself out there' is basically 'announce your presence'. Get your minds out of the gutter, derp.
