Summary
Meet the women who aren’t asking permission from Silicon Valley to chase their dreams. They are going for it―building cutting-edge tech startups, investing in each other’s ventures, crushing male hacker stereotypes and rallying the next generation of women in tech. With a nod to tech trailblazers like Sheryl Sandberg and Marissa Mayer, Geek Girl Rising introduces readers to the fearless female founders, technologists, and innovators fighting at a grassroots level for an ownership stake in the revolution that’s changing the way we live, work and connect. Readers will meet Debbie Sterling, inventor of GoldieBlox, the first engineering toy for girls, which topples the notion that only boys can build; peek inside the glamorous world of YouTube pioneer Michelle Phan; and tour the headquarters of The Muse, the hottest career site for millennials, led by intrepid co-founder and CEO, Kathryn Minshew. Amid the rising chorus of women speaking out against sexism in technology, media, entertainment and politics, Geek Girl Rising’s message of female solidarity and empowerment is more urgent than ever. Now in paperback, with a new afterword that takes readers inside 2017’s national conversation on sexual harassment, the #MeToo movement, and what’s ahead for women in tech.
