Women in Nerdfighteria

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Let's talk about what it's like to be a woman in nerdfighteria. How have the last ten years been for women and femme-identifying persons in our community? What's changed? What hasn't? Are there differences between our experience as nerdfighters online and off, in the wider world and among other nerdfighters? We'll discuss women who make and do rad things, where gender divides exist and are being torn down, and strategies for supporting each other as we charge forth into another decade of nerdfighteria.
