Book Review: Geek Girl Rising

Geek Girl Rising is all about females working in tech.  It features Debbie Sterling who started GoldieBlox which is a product that I haven’t tried but absolutely LOVE the idea of – an engineering toy for girls – that I absolutely wish was around for me when I was younger!  Also featured is Ipsy, the lead software developer of Pinterest, and a bunch of other kick ass women in tech.  It talks a bit about sexism and overcoming to work in the field (this is a HUGE thing that unfortunately most women in this field have to put up with and overcome) and I love what they are doing! There definitely is room for females in the tech industry and a lot of really smart ones out there who are moving up the ranks as well as creating their own companies.  There are a lot of great role models out there and this book focuses on a few of them.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
