MISSION STATEMENT

The world's first cyberfeminist zine! - "a tool of butt kicking empowerment for young geekgrrrls" Our motto  - "grrrls need modems"! 

NEEDS

geekgirl aims to debunk and demystify the world of computers and information technologies for all. 

geekgirl has wide appeal - we don't just focus on feminism, we like techno music, arty antics, multimedia, and lots of hyperthoughts and pointers to fun sites and geekphiles. 

geekgirl is a dreamy little rag that has never lost sight of the femfight - but can also get stolen away by a UFO or a good ol' tale of conspiracy or net gossip. 

geekgirl is cyberfeminist - eclectic and always recycling.
