The Mary Sue
The Mary Sue
The Mary Sue is a female geek entertainment site. It began as a site for women who didn’t feel accepted into mainstream entertainment topics and has expanded to be an inclusive “guide to the galaxy” on news, pop culture, fandom, and politics. The name The Mary Sue came from the humor seen in re-appropriating a mostly negative cliche about female characters. The Mary Sue has been cited in articles by The New York Times, Ad Age, Bustle.com, Refinery29, E! Online, Jezebel, etc.
The Mary Sue debuted in 2012 with a staff of 2—Susanna Polo, Founding Editor and Jamie Frevele, Associate Editor—covering comic books, movies, TV, and more from a feminist perspective. Shortly thereafter, Jill Pantozzi, Editor-In-Chief joined the team. In 2014, The Mary Sue merged with its sister site, Geekosystem, to form a larger editorial team and take on topics in science, tech, and space.
