With comic book heroes ruling the biggest summer blockbusters and gamers competing in front of large crowds at the Barclays Center, it’s safe to say nerdom has shed its subculture status. But are all nerds sharing in the spoils? A panel of nerd girls, including Susana Polo (founder of The Mary Sue), Jill Pantozzi (The Nerdy Bird), and Amy Imhoff (Shoes and Starships) discuss the sexism that too often rears its ugly head in a community that claims to be a haven for outsiders. Moderated by Angélique Roché, Vice President External Affairs for the Ms. Foundation for Women.
Presented in partnership with the Ms. Foundation for Women.
