This convention is a way to provide a whole bunch of creative women with a space, and opportunity, and a format for tabletop gaming. It also is open to anyone, regardless of biology or gender identity.
Please throw your support (and ducats) their way.
Here's a bit more about the event:
In addition, it provides women with an outlet to experience gaming as gamers, setting aside for a few fun-filled days the women's issues discussions that often dominate our time and energy in the hobby. While women run all aspects of ConTessa, anyone can join in the fun - playing in games, joining a panel, or watching events. The convention is held online, spanning the globe, open to all. Google Hangouts keeps things accessible - no need for a high-end computer or expensive specialized equipment, just click and play.
