I really don't understand why women playing games continues to be seen as unusual when the cold hard facts back up that we're part of the community. As of 2017's Pew study on online gaming asserts, there's only 8% more of males gaming than females. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/09/11/younger-men-play-video-games-but-so-do-a-diverse-group-of-other-americans/ The real difference between male and female gamers is in what kind of games women play. This isn't because women only want to play dress up dolly or crush candy, it's because many online games that are more competitive in nature have traditionally lacked representation for women, and have a negative and often toxic environment. I don't need brighter guns or silly dances to be intrigued by a game, I just need to feel like I'm welcome.

Don't forget the PVE mode called Save the World came first! It has a ton of diverse hero subclasses to choose from. In fact the default hero is Ramirez a Latina "Rescue Trooper" Soldier.
