She’s Such A Geek
An anthology of 24 essays by geeky women, Shes Such a Geek: Women Write about Science, Technology, and Other Nerdy Stuff “celebrates women who have flourished in the male-dominated realms of technical and cultural arcana. Editors Annalee Newitz and Charlie Anders bring together a diverse range of critical and personal essays about the meaning of female nerdhood by women who are in love with genomics, obsessed with blogging, learned about sex from Dungeons and Dragons, and aren’t afraid to match wits with men or computers. More than anything, She’s Such a Geek is a celebration and call to arms: it’s a hopeful book which looks forward to a day when women will invent molecular motors, design the next ultra-tiny supercomputer, and run the government.”
The She’s Such a Geek website and blog is also up and running now — specializing in entries on geeky topics as they relate to women and girls.
I thought I’d post the book info today, as it doesn’t look like either amazon or chapters have tonnes of copies stocked (hopefully indie stores will do better), and this book seems like a great, reasonably priced Festivus prezzie for the geeky girl in your life…
