I hope that this is just a troll, but I sadly doubt it. If it focussed on the biases within and between genders/genetics/beliefs/etc., to foster understanding rather than division, THEN it would be worthwhile, but to trumpet a single bias... Urgh.

I understand most comments are quite old(100+ days old) so they might refer to an earlier version, if there was an earlier one. Still, while I understand what the developers tried to do and aimed for, I cannot say that's a good game. I mean, if you're into abstract board games, you might find the game aesthetically pleasing -I did- but that's subjective.
I really don't want to be rude or anything, but the whole thing felt too...bitter, I think it's the proper word. The rules are pretty basic, you move, land on squares, read cards with turn loss, move forward etc. and so on. Nothing extraordinary. Now, the issue is the cards and more specifically, what;s written on them. For the male characters ~90% of the 'attributes' give bonuses, while for the female ones it's about ~10%. And even those cards make you feel negative (according to a 'positive' card, a female dressed revealing gets a promotion). And it goes all the way like that.
Now, as mentioned in other comments, sexism is very much real and an issue. But this game IS sexist; for both sexes. As a guy that worked for some years and now owns a business and has and is collaborating with many great women and men, I can say with certainty and some degree of smugness, I really don't judge my co-workers and employees by their looks or their sex. If you want to make money and get on well with people, you don't judge them like that. I don't look down on every woman or get along fine with every man and believe me, I am not the only one, there are scores of people like that. There are sexists, but testing the game I can't help but notice that the developers are among those.
Sorry for the very large comment, and I have to say, there was a certain amount of work and passion in the game. I believe if prejudice are left behind, the developers can come up with something grand.
Male privilege exist, but so does female privilege.
Don't look at the fact women get paid less immediately assume it's because of sexism. Asians get paid more than white people on average. Do people just pay Asians more just because they're Asian? No. They're clearly doing something better than white people, and that's why they're getting paid more.

This is such a stupid game and concept. I can't believe the feminazis have invaded itch.
Good job! This game is #1 on my list of things that I would burn if I got for christmas! I also never thought I would see such a sexist board game!
This is a dumb and sexist idea.
Please feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think! ;)

Seriously? Making us Males who ACTUALLY grants you voting rights the bad people? And also, where did you get the idea that we discriminate you from everything? Are you trying to make us look bad and foolish? I will have you know that millions of men put their blood and sweat into keeping their wives and children safe and happy. 2nd and 3rd wave feminism has done nothing but increased suicide rates for BOTH men and women and divided both genders. So don't you dare think of creating a game about your "problems" and actually make something that people WILL enjoy! Stop bringing feminism into an already happy community.
