Title: The Geek Feminist Revoution

Award-winning fiction writer and essayist, Kameron Hurley, turns her attention to the issues that have plagued her and countless women this century. Part memoir and part critical sociological commentary, this collection of essays is a satisfyingly unabashed examination of how pop culture fails women of every kind.

Anyone who reads stories, watches television/film, uses the internet, and plays games, and gives a damn about the power structures that undermine diverse groups within this society, should pick up this book. For those who have missed issues like gamergate, Hurley's words will teach with searing honesty; for those who know of these problems all too well, her earnest words will inspire and comfort; and for everyone in between, be ready to be enraged, enlightened, and motivated to keep fighting the good fight.
