As a programmer, science fiction writer, and genre fan, I am deeply grateful for the Ada Initiative's work to increase the participation of women in open technology and culture. Their anti-harassment advocacy, ally skills workshops, and AdaCamps are making my communities safer and more welcoming. I'm a member of the Ada Initiative Advisory Board, and a proud supporter of their work.

But while the Ada Initiative has an official savory fruit, it doesn't yet have an Official Science Fiction/Fantasy Badass. We need to fix this immediately.

Over the next few days, I'll be featuring awesome women from Science Fiction and Fantasy in head-to-head match-ups. You can vote for your favorite by donating to the Ada Initiative under your heroine's banner. Not only will you be playing a pivotal role in determining the Ada Initiative's (completely un-)official genre badass, you can also get cool swag like their new "not afraid of the f-word" sticker!

Our Current Matchup: Katniss Everdeen vs Buffy Summers. Click on your heroine to donate in support.
