GEEKGIRLCON ORIGIN STORY
GeekGirlCon celebrates and honors the legacy of women contributing to science and technology; comics, arts, and literature; and game play and game design by connecting geeky women world-wide and creating community to foster continued growth of women in geek culture through events.
The first inkling of GeekGirlCon took form at San Diego Comic-Con in 2010. After many, many hours of hard work and planning, on October 8, 2011, the first-ever GeekGirlCon opened its doors at the Seattle Center’s Northwest Rooms and the EMP Museum. The two-day convention was a huge success. Nearly 4,000 people celebrated the female geek, including 400 attendees under 10 years old.
Today this grassroots-led, all-volunteer organization is growing. Now close to 40 strong, the staff works tirelessly to elevate the profile of geeky women across all types of geeky activities through social media and a multitude of events, including the annual GeekGirlCon convention.
