Women Who Kick Ass
Anna Anthropy: Why she kicks ass
She is an American video game designer and critic, who has developed a number of freeware games including Mighty Jill Off, REDDER, and Lesbian Spider Queens of Mars, and is a co-founder and associate editor of The Gamer’s Quarter.
 Her games explore the relationship between sadism and game design; Anthropy’s games challenge players’ expectations of what the developer should create and how the player should be reprimanded for errors
In 2012, she released dys4ia, an autobiographical game about her experiences with hormone replacement therapy that "[allows] the player to experience a simulation or approximation of what she went through." 
Her first book, Rise of the Videogame Zinesters, “promotes the idea of  small, interesting, personal experiences by hobbyist authors … Zinesters exists to be a kind of ambassador for that idea of what video games can be. The book also deals with a detailed analysis of the mechanics and potentialities of digital games, including the idea that games can be more usefully compared to theater than film (“There is always a scene called “World 1-2,” although each performance of “World 1-2” will be different”) and the role of chance in games.
