Summary The "disruptive" and "forward-thinking" tech industry is fifty years behind the rest of America with respect to the values it holds and the people it represents. LEAN OUT collects the stories of people who fought GamerGate, from women and transgender artists who have made their own games, from women who have started their own companies, from women who have worked for some of the most successful corporations in America, from LGBTQ women, from women of color, to transgender people and people who do not ascribe to a gender. By turns a brutal examination of the power politics of the 21st century elite and an inclusive manifesto for a new way forward, LEAN OUT is crucial reading for those of us in the industry, as well as its critics
