About this Episode

Monika and Amanda discuss their experience (or lack of) going to comic cons over the years before deep diving into New York Comic Con 2018. Geek Herring talks about 2018’s comic con panels, Intersectional Feminism, and marginalised groups across geek genres.

In this episode of Geek Herring, you’ll find out:

  • What types of panels at NYCC18 focused on diversity
  • Why intersectional feminism is so important, especially across geek culture
  • How to address diversity when creating

From @SamMaggs: “We just need MORE women in things because right now when you have always the one female character, it means that we are presented with all these different ways to be a man, and then the one woman has to represent all women of all types in all ways.” #NYCC2018”
