Despite that old trope about geekdom being the domain of dudes, the reality is that it’s anything but. For proof, look no further than Phoenix Comicon 2016. The four-day event from June 2 to June 5 featured the actresses behind several of sci-fi’s more legendary female characters (including Alex Kingston from Doctor Who, Star Trek: The Next Generation's
and the Bionic Woman
’s Lindsay Wagner) and a multitude of ladies practicing cosplay or getting their geek on.
