Just because this tumblr is called geek girls doesn't mean you have to be a girl to confess anything here. ANYBODY with insights to the geek girl community, comments about women in video games and the media can confess here. You can either use the ask or submit a graphic by clicking here.
Are any of you guys familiar with the book “Half the Sky”? It tells true stories from all over the world about women who suffer from, abuse, lack of medical care, rape, education and poverty. There is currently a facebook game called “Half The Sky Movement”, like some other social games it uses “energy” when you run out you buy more energy and the money goes to charity to help women and girls around the world.
I’ve played the game for the bit, it’s linear and it’s really easy to advance through the game but what keeps you playing is knowing that you’re giving books to an actual school that can’t afford them or helping a young girl get a vaccine.
