Broad Band is the Our Bodies, Ourselves for all computer users—this knowledge belongs to us. And Claire Evans tells the story like a friend who knows you get bored easily; a generous sort of brilliance that pulled me right in. This is a radically important, timely work.”
MIRANDA JULY, filmmaker, artist, and author of The First Bad Man


Broad Band is such an interesting secret history, written with great panache.”
JON RONSON, author of The Psychopath Test and So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed


“A necessary addition to the story of women in computing, about known heroes and the fearless women and punks the world needs to know more about.”
ELLEN ULLMAN, author of Life in Code, Close to the Machine, and The Bug

Broad Band is thrilling, powerful stuff. At once an electric feminist history of modern tech and a much-needed corrective to the hyper-male mythology of Silicon Valley, Evans’s compelling, surprising, and eminently readable work restores due credit to the countless brilliant women who made the connected world into what it is today.”
BRIAN MERCHANT, author of The One Device

“Evans’s riveting account of female innovators from the Victorianage to today fills in gaps in the history we should have had all along, and provides unique, enlightening insight into some of the most revolutionary technological advances of our time—from the world’s first computer game to the creation of the ‘.com’ domain.”
JOSHUA DAVIS, author of Spare Parts
