Geek feminism blog and wiki

| No Comments

Cool new group blog: the Geek Feminism Blog, featuring Liz H, Sumana H, and a bunch of other interesting writers. (I wasn't previously aware of most of them, but I like what they're writing.)

Their About page says, among other things:

The Geek Feminism blog exists to support, encourage, and discuss issues facing women in geek communities, including [...] science and technology, gaming, SF fandom, and more.

The entry that appears to've gotten the most attention so far is "Where are all the men bloggers?", a send-up of Where are the women bloggers? posts. The in-character comments on the "men bloggers" post are particularly entertaining, at least up until people who didn't realize it was a joke started posting comments.

See also the followup post for further discussion and explanation.

Oh, and those of y'all who are men may also be interested in the Geek Feminism Wiki's Resources for men page, providing some suggestions on how men can be allies of women in geek communities.
