The NZZ a swiss newspaper located in Zürich has an article about women in games and games development (German only I am afraid).
I was one of the people interviewed for the article.
It is about what games women like to play. Because there is no standard woman, this question is impossible to answer.
And it is about women in game development. There are actually in demand.
So girls if you want to work in computer games, learn to program or design or management, they wait for you.
And yes even in programming women are on the rising. If your code works, nobody is interested in your gender.
Go for it and make the games you want to play.
