Comic-Con 2013: Move Over Boys, the Sci-Fi Girls Are Here
When Comic-Con was held over the weekend, it was announced that nearly half of the attendees were female. This doesn’t surprise me. I have been a sci-fi fan my entire life. However, if you see a picture of a science fiction fan in the media, they are predominately portrayed as geeky and male. Rarely are female fans, like myself, shown. And even more rarely are we acknowledged. As much as I love the genre of science fiction, it has been a little difficult being a female fan because most science fiction is still geared towards men.
