Geek Girls of Vancouver showcases how inspiring local women shape events, fandom & culture within the geek community.
Women are prominent in all aspects of geek culture from comic books to sci-fi to video games. Whether it's creating awesome webseries and comics, putting on nerdleque performances or helping to shape the conversation about fandom, women are an integral part of this increasingly mainstream culture. So why does pop culture tend to place them into secondary roles? Geek Girls of Vancouver will showcase fantastic females who continue to prove that fandom never was just a boys club and who work to keep the doors open to anyone who wants to be a part of this amazing community!
