Women in Video Games: Snow White Raises the Bar in The Wolf Among Us

The Wolf Among Us Bigby and Snow

So along with my writing for Leviathyn, I also have a writing internship at a site called BK Nation. The writers there tend to focus on important social, political, and economic issues and, in that vein, my first article was about women in video games. Specifically, Snow White in The Wolf Among Us.

“Snow is forced to confront a difficult issue. Should she enforce the rules and arrest Fables who don’t look human because they can’t afford the necessary spell? Or should she look the other way and risk the secrecy of Fabletown? A strong woman in a position of power — who isn’t the villain — is a rare sight in gaming, particularly when that character confronts difficult and intriguing moral questions.”
