News Summary: Sexism still an issue at E3


BOOTH BABES: At the Electronic Entertainment Expo video game trade show this week, most of the attendees were men. Plenty of women were at E3, but some were there as so-called "booth babes" — scantily clad female models hired to hype products and attract attendees to exhibitors' displays on the show floor.

WOMEN GAMERS: That's despite a report by the Entertainment Software Association found that 45 percent of the gaming population is now women, and women make up 46 percent of the most frequent game buyers.

CHANGES: Still, there were noticeably fewer "booth babes" roaming E3 this week than in previous years.
