[Second, while gender harassment in games is not as deadly as the fight for civil rights back in the 1960s, the same methods for mitigating it apply.
I don't agree. The degree of the response should be equal to the degree of the problem. For example, an large march on Washington for non-harassment in video games would turn off many people who'd see it as an over-reaction. Especially since, as you said, women in some countries have actual life-threatening situations they have to deal with.
Article on a video game site != march on Washington.
Plus, please, some time go to GDC and count the women in the "I want a job" section, then count the women in the "I have a job" section.
It's a bit shocking.
