Description
Jennifer L. Pozner, Veronica Arreola and Cynematic discuss the role that feminist blogging played in the the 2008 US election. They argue that during the 2008 election season, mainstream media was focused on horse-race reporting, while feminist bloggers deepened the election-commentary landscape. The panelists also explore the risks and rewards for women in engaging politically online--especially women blogging about gender, race, and class--and ask how feminist bloggers can best hold mainstream media accountable for their coverage of women and people of color, while broadening public debate.
