5 Newsletters Every Woman Should Be Reading

Sometimes the easiest way to find news is to stop seeking it and, instead, let it come to you. That’s my approach to gathering the latest news, op-eds and articles related to women in government.

I’ll be honest. If I mention an article in any GovFem post, chances are I found it between the hours of 9am and 10am while I was running through my morning emails. That’s because I subscribe to a ton of newsletters that aggregate the best of the internet and deliver it to my inbox. It saves me a ton of time and keeps me up-to-date on the latest.

Want to be equally informed about gender issues and women in the workplace? Check out my favorite newsletters and subscribe below:

The Broadsheet

This daily newsletter by Fortune’s Kristen Bellstrom covers everything to do with female leaders in the private or public sector. It tracks C-suite leadership moves, news related to gender issues and equality, and even offers editorials on the hot topics of the day. This is my go-to newsletter every morning. Subscribe here.

Featuring journalist Ann Friedman and tech PR pro Aminatou Sow, the podcast is always a fun, feminist conversation about the events of the day. Their newsletter, The Bleed, offers a podcast recap as well as other cool stories about or related to women’s issues. They also occasionally cover celebrity gossip, for a little added flavor.
