Women and Social Media: The Key to Electoral Success

I’m looking forward to this year’s Netroots Nation conference where I’ll be on a a great panel with three amazing women I know – Veronica Arreola of Viva la Feminista, Kristen Rowe-Finkbeiner of MomsRising and Carol Jenkins, the former president of the Women’s Media Center. I always enjoy being on panels where we talk about this topic (hm, maybe because it was the topic of my book Mothers of Intention?)

But this year, to promote the conference many of us were asked to participate in podcasts to give people a little taste about the panels and where attendees could also learn a little bit about the speakers. So it was fun to be on one the of Spreecasts with some of the other panelists, as well as Nolan Treadway from Netroots. And, of course, with technology today, I can share the podcast with you here!  Enjoy!

And if you get to the conference, stop by and say hello!

    just love that this started out with Anita Jackson’s child crying in the background (not that I want her child to cry!). When i first became a mother, i was so worried that my baby would cry during meetings with professors in graduate school. By the time i graduated i had learned that it was ok (by then they were throwing soggy cheerios on the fancy carpets and climbing the bookcases!). I learned that as a mother, i couldn’t/shouldn’t make my children invisible to my work. it just shows the different environment we can create when women are in charge of the media through which they speak. Would her child have been allowed to cry in the background of a CNN broadcast? It was doubly appropo that this spreecast was about women and social media. love it!

    Deb, I can’t tell you how it warms my heart that you wrote that. Even just this morning, two weeks after we did this Spreecast, I still had a fleeting and rueful thought about it. Thank you for your kind understanding words and for sharing your own experience with having young kids while trying to do “outside” work! :)
