The Women Of The Early Days Of D&D

Kotaku has a great article about some of the early influencers and culture behind the initial days of Dungeons & Dragons. The article is an in-depth look at how much women influenced the early days of D&D, but how little they were allowed to engage with it or felt comfortable in the culture it created.  Read the full article over at Kotaku.

An artistic rendition of 3 women as plastic miniatures. One is wrting on a scroll, the middle one stands over a giant tube of paint and holds a broom-sized paintbrush, the one on the right is making a map while sitting on a globe.
