Women Political Bloggers Gaining Media Attention

by Sandy Renshaw on December 5, 2007

Why am I reporting on this topic? Because AroundDesMoines is included on the List of 275+ Women Political Bloggers. And our readers might be interested in what other women have to say about politics.

First, a little history… on September 30, Katherine Q. Seelye asked readers of The New York Times “why more men seemed to be involved in politics online than women” and she got a good response. On Oct. 1, the article titled, “Women, Politics, and the Internet,” continued to draw attention and remarks.

Well, Catherine Morgan decided to compile a list of women political bloggers. It started with 100, grew to 200, and now has surpassed 275. Yea, Catherine! Way to go! What started as a response to a newspaper article has grown to a list, The Political Voices of Women blog, and a community.

Won’t you add your voice? If you would like to write for AroundDesMoines, contact me.

Thanks so much for the kind words.

The list was also mentioned in The Huffington Post this week…
