Female geeks outnumber male geeks for first time

Telegraph:

Female science fiction fans now outnumber men for the first time.

The digital television channel Sci Fi UK has seen a 10 per cent rise in the number of female viewers over the past eight years and 1.4 million women now tune in – 51 per cent of the audience. The channel, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, links the rise in “girl geeks” to the proliferation of heroines such as Buffy, Lara Croft and Xena.
