The Department of fair employment and housing (dfeh) of California launched a two-year investigation on Activision Blizzard and found that the company discriminated against female employees in terms of employment and treatment. Dfeh believes that the company's leadership failed to take effective measures to stop and prevent such behavior, and filed a lawsuit against the company with the Los Angeles High Court on Tuesday local time.


Another female employee said that they lost promotion opportunities due to childbirth; Female employees with children will be rejected because they go to day care to pick up their children; Lactating women are sometimes driven out of the nursing room because male employees have meetings here.

Female employees on the world of Warcraft team will be accosted by male colleagues and superiors and forced to listen to their arguments for beautifying rape. The complaint even points out that an ATV employee committed suicide while participating in a holiday organized by the company, and her nude photo had been circulated at a company party before.

Activision Blizzard made a fierce comment on the lawsuit, saying that the company was very cooperative with dfeh's investigation and provided a lot of data and materials, but dfeh refused to specify the problem.

The company complained that dfeh did not fully communicate with the company before the prosecution, so we should sit down and have a frank talk about which aspect is not enough and which aspect can be improved. As a result, the other party is eager to fight each other without showing any good intentions. Blizzard's men are not vegetarian, so I'll teach you how to do itplay a gameTake legal action.


Blizzard said that dfeh brought up the old things in the complaint and once again dragged the families of the dead into the vortex of pain, which is particularly unacceptable.

In addition, EA announced that it has signed a cooperation agreement with the women's Professional Golf Association (LPGA) to add LPGA events to the new PGA Tour produced by EA Sports.

EA Sports has always been committed to promoting women's image in various forms in the game, and will promote women's golf events to the majority of players with a true, credible and up-to-date attitude, EA said in a statement.

The game development team specially recruited former professional player Iona Stephen to act as the first female live commentator of the series.
