Politics and the City tries to lure women away from the mall and back to the voting booth

I still can't decide whether packaging a news and politics site aimed at young women in pretty fuschia and black, and giving it a very Sex and the City-inspired theme is a good move that should get girls interested in current events . . . or more than a little patronizing.


British TV presenter (and ex-politician's girlfriend btw) June Sarpong obviously hopes it's the former, as she has just launched her pet project, Politics and the City, a new site for the Cosmo crowd, which so far seems to be a big success. As you'd expect, it has a British slant, but there's enough about Barack Obama and Amy Winehouse's husband to keep an international audience interested, too.

But is this the best way to get young women passionate about politics? I'd love to know what Popgadget readers think. Leave your comment below or join the Popgadget community to join the discussion.
