Geek Girls Don't Cry - Real-Life Lessons from Fictional Female Characters

Author(s): Andrea Towers; Marisha Ray (Foreword by)

Feminism/Women's Studies

Geek girls don't cry . . . they get strong Using examples from both real life and pop culture, entertainment writer Andrea Towers provides powerful tips on how women can overcome obstacles.

What does it mean for a woman to be strong--especially in a world where our conception of a "hero" is still so heavily influenced by male characters like Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman? Geek Girls Don't Cry explores the subject, offering advice tailor-made for fans of any age. Andrea Towers, who works in public relations at Marvel Entertainment and has written about superheroines for outlets such as Entertainment Weekly, outlines some of the primary traits heroic women can call upon, like resilience, self-acceptance, and bravery, pulling in stories from real-life women as well as figures from the pop-culture pantheon. She also interviews the creators of our favorite fictional heroines, who discuss how they drew from their own experiences to develop these protagonists and how, conversely, their own creations continue to inspire them.
