When I was at BlogHer recently, there was a panel about how to be taken seriously as political bloggers. When asked at the beginning of the session what we wanted to get out of it, I said something about women being taken seriously as political bloggers in general, even knowing we probably didn’t have time to really get into that. The moderator, Morra Aarons, replied in kind with something along the lines of how that could take us all day.
It seems someone from the New York Times was there. Kara Jesella put up a post a few days ago about the issue, called “Blogging’s Glass Ceiling”. Unfortunately the post was under the Fashion & Style section (part of the problem with women being taken seriously – often women’s issues are lumped in there), but nevertheless, I’m happy the topic was written about, it’s a good article, and she made some interesting points about the issue, delving farther into it than I have to date.
