Women are going to be the key to which candidate -- President Obama vs Mitt Romney -- will win the White House in November. That's what we're talking about on our Netroots Nation panel on Thursday -- how to engage that crucial voting bloc with online tools. The panel with Viva la Feminista Veronica Arreola, [...]

I'm a big believer in girl power, as is my soon-to-be fourth-grader PunditGirl. She's all about girl solidarity especially when it comes to the boys on the playground.  Come to think of it, so are all her girlfriends.  They all share that "us vs. them" mentality regardless of their skin colors, the neighborhoods they live [...]

I'm supposed to be off-line this week, as the PunditMom family takes a break at the beach. But sometimes the New York Times can get me a little riled up.Sunday, the NYT ran a story about the BlogHer conference. SCORE! Right?Well, not exactly. Because, yet again, the MSM has run a story about women bloggers [...]
