BCM215 Contextual Essay

steff harris


The concept of my project was to study the game Grand Theft Auto with a strong focus on female characters in the game. I was interested in the way in which the game plays on female stereotypes, catering towards male GTA players.

I took a feminist approach, however as my DA went on, my views and opinions started to shift, making it somewhat difficult to maintain a strict feminist approach.


  1. I created three blog posts, each one focusing on a different part of my analytical framework.

2. I engaged with GTA players via Reddit forums, WordPress and with friends who play.



3. I created a short YouTube video of my boyfriend playing the game.

In order to share my content effectively, I linked all of my blog posts, YouTube video, Twitter, WordPress etc. together.
