There are so many women around the web writing about important issues every week. You’d never know from the general conversations surrounding the women often called “mom bloggers.” And I got laughed at a couple of times this week at a book event for Mothers of Intention: How Women and Social Media are Revolutionizing Politics in America, when I suggested that women online are the freshest commentary voices around who are trying to change the world.
So for those critics, I present Broads of the Week — 11/19/11 Edition:
An article entitled Cornered in the Corner Office at the Women’s Media Center focuses on the obstacles still faced by women attorneys, even in the age of The Good Wife.
