The Best Female Streamers on Twitch in 2019

Posted by William Sattelberg on March 23, 2019

If you pay any attention to the livestreaming community online, you’ve heard of Twitch. Originally created as a spin-off from Justin.tv, Twitch (or Twitch.tv) originally focused on just gaming, with streams of competitive and single player games, including titles like League of LegendsMinecraftDotA 2, and more. After the gaming service started to overshadow the original Justin.tv, Twitch became the sole focus of the company in 2014, and that same year, the website was sold to Amazon for nearly a billion dollars. Since then, Twitch has become home to streamers of all types, from professional gamers to podcasters, charity streams to speedrunning, and even non-gaming content like food, creative, and “IRL” streams that add more flexibility to streams.

It probably doesn’t surprise anyone that a big percentage of streamers on Twitch are male. It can be hard for women to break into the streaming game for many reasons; the top ten streamers on Twitch by followers are all male, and a study from 2016 found that women only made up around one third of Twitch’s streamer base. From harassment problems to the classic “camgirl” insult, there are a multitude of reasons why women either find it difficult to find an audience, or dislike streaming altogether. While it’s definitely possible to find popular streamers through Twitch, when most of the well-known users are male, it can be difficult to branch out to different kinds of streams, especially those led by women.

We’ve done our best to sort through the site to find some incredible gamers and streamers that people should be watching on Twitch. Whether you’re looking to support women on Twitch to help their audience grow, or you’re just looking for new voices to add to your subscription list on the site, these are some of the best female streamers on Twitch today, organized in alphabetical order.

Some of these girls are really getting a lot of attention for the wrong reasons. Good that twitch has a great policy on nudity etc. Otherwise a lot of these girls would go a lot further to get more attention and view.

:/ yeah. Cause they’re aren’t sites for that kind of thing. And that’s not their fault if others are giving them attention just because they’re women

wut this list… kitty at number 4? and kaceytron? hello? 2010 wants its meme back. and when did she brand herself as a professional fake girl gamer I’m pretty sure she just says professional girl gamer which is annoying because she wont shut up about it.You arent proving stereotypes wrong by been them. b t w harassment isn’t attention and comments girl streamers should try maybe stop been girls. Where is lilypichu or eloise or any of the streamers that are successful for been good gameplay and aren’t just “girl streamer”? this list was to just promote bad streams. i would recommend cat killer kneecoleslaw because her streams are wild u just dont know whats going to happen. 🙂
