In recent years, male geeks have taken the world by storm: they’ve become unexpected sex symbols (Seth Rogen and Michael Cera), they’ve penned pieces of literary brilliance (Rest in peace, David Foster Wallace), they’ve even reinvented the art of modern cinema (Kudos, Coen brothers!) But what about their female counterparts? After all, fangirls are just like fanboys—they put on their imperial stormtrooper Lycra pants one leg at a time. An homage to the feminine side of geek culture from films to crafts to independent movies, Geek Girls Unite celebrates women like Tina Fey, Natalie Portman and Bjork, who have proven that sometimes the smartest move is marching to your own drummer. Each chapter is dedicated to a cross-section of the geek elite—fangirls, music fanatics, bookworms, craft mavens, funny girls, and film buffs.
