In this week’s podcast we talk to Megan Gotch, adorable writer of Nerdy Girlie, a blog that focuses on all things “nerdy and girlie”. She is an avid convention goer and fan girl who talks about her experiences with cosplay and participating on panels that discussed topics relating on stereotypes and sexism.
In the podacast we discuss the perception of women in fan culture, squee girls, and the expectation put upon female cosplayers.

With the growing acceptance of women in many fan communities,these issues are fodder for a lot of public commentary. For example, Are Women Comic Books as Rare of Unicorns and When Will the Perception of Women in Comics Catch up to Reality.
Thanks for listening and remember – capes are not just for the boys!
