The Rise of D.Va

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Among the many distinct characters in Blizzard Entertainment's "Overwatch", the character known as D.Va has developed a following and symbolism that reaches far beyond the game. With her backstory as a champion gamer who became a real-life hero, and as the youngest playable character in the game, she embodies defiance of several stereotypes, particularly in the often highly-chauvinistic (or worse) competitive video game community, so much so that her in-game emblems were worn by many protesters at the recent Women's Marches in Korea. The panel will explore D.Va's significance outside of the game, as a symbol and inspiration to girls and women in the gaming community, both in her home country of Korea, and around the world.
