an anthology

by Leigh Cuen View author's profile page

Overview
This is the first open source book by women about cryptocurrency and cypherpunk pioneers. It includes a variety of international contributions from bitcoin developers and users, crypto entrepreneurs and community educators. The collection highlights the diversity of people involved with cypherpunk technology, meaning in their own ways they are all using privacy-enhancing technology to promote social change. And yet their motivations and circumstances are all wildly different. Bitcoin is a tool that enables self-sovereign financial choices, akin to independent birth control or career choices. For women brave enough to trust themselves, the world may now appear ripe for a new type of revolution.
Description

Leigh Cuen's "Cypherpunk Women" anthology, is the first open source book focused on gender politics and cryptocurrency. This anthology, published by Cita Press, includes essays, poems and stories by cypherpunk pioneers like Soona Amhaz, Pamela Morgan, Josie Bellini, Kiara Bickers, Audrey Chaing, Emily Faria, Janey Gak, Allie Eve Knox, Jordan Kong, Sarah Jamie Lewis, Mir Liponi, Beth McCarthy, Chrissa McFarlane, Lisa Neigut, Norika Kizawa, Chelsea Palmer, Anita Posch, Samantha Radocchia, Hannah Rosenberg, Kokab "Setareh" Shabanipour, Amber Scott, Alena Vranova, Leah Wald, Karima Williams, and Joyce Yang, in addition to many anonymous contributors. These pioneers hail from Venezuela, Iran, Nigeria, Japan, the Czech Republic and Canada, just to name a few. Many people may be familiar with bitcoin as a speculative investment. For most of these contributors, cryptocurrency is a do-it-yourself tool. The tool enables self-sovereign financial choices, akin to independent birth control or career choices. For women brave enough to trust themselves, the world may now seem ripe for a new type of cultural revolution.
