Illuminating women's clout and influence both online and in the political realm, this book, by popular political blogger, PunditMom Joanne Bamberger, studies the rise of the motherhood political movement and how online and social media tools have enabled women to become a larger and more powerful presence in the world of politics and activism. Recognizing the fact that women make up the majority of online users and influencers, Bamberger traces this influence across the intersections of politics, motherhood and social media. Mothers of Intention, with its myriad stories and opinions, sheds light on a strong undercurrent that most of the political realm ignores - women's voices, and more specifically, those of mothers. By countering the political dismissal of mothers with proof of women's varied and impassioned responses to politics and media, the book attests to the increasing importance of mothers' opinions in time for the 2012 campaign and for elections to come. In addition to analyzing this ever-growing trend, Mothers of Intention presents a collection of essays by passionate women who are quickly becoming political influencers, including a preface by Pulitzer Prize winner Connie Schultz, and essays by Mom-101's Liz Gumbinner, Veronica Arreola of Viva la Feminista blog, Jaelithe Judy of MOMocrats, Jessica Gottlieb, and MomsRising's Lisa Frack, among many others. Bamberger describes "Mothers of Intention" as women, diverse in geography, ethnicity, age and political persuasion, who pursue a world of more political discourse through their powerful, thoughtful and humorous voices about what it's like to be a mother in today's political world. Joanne Bamberger is a writer, political and media analyst and social media consultant. In addition to writing her own political blog, PunditMom, she is a regular contributor atAOL's Politics Daily and The Huffington Post, as well as MOMocrats and MomsRising. Bamberger was also a contributing editor for News & Politics at BlogHer and is the co-founder of The DC Moms blog and The Broad Side, a new site for women's opinion writing. A former op-ed columnist for The Washington Examiner, Joanne's work has also appeared in a variety of publications such as The Washington Post, Legal Times, Washingtonian Magazine and many others. Her political commentary has appeared on CNN, Fox News, Good Morning America, XM POTUS Radio, BBC Radio, NPR.com, and more.
