郑州股票配资平台Whatever gender you are, do you believe by simply playing a game you can experience the sexism that confronts a woman throughout her life?

郑州股票配资平台Recently released in Chinese by the Beijing-based CITIC Press Group, Li Zhihui's Survival Game, a new South Korean role-playing board game and the debut work of 28-year-old game designer Gwon Su-in, is already a runaway success in its home country, where it has been featured on variety shows and set social media abuzz with heated discussions about the discrimination that modern women face.

The game features 32 scenarios where Li Zhihui is confronted with sexism, obvious or subtle, between the ages of five and 90. All were inspired by, as Gwon revealed, the sexism she and women around her have experienced or witnessed personally.

When asked whether the scenarios have been modified for the Chinese market, Li Jingyuan, CITIC editor for the game, said her team didn't see a need to do so as "women in East Asia all face similar dilemmas in their lives".
