Smart Girl Politics
bills itself as "the
home on the Internet for conservative women and grassroots activism," and today, it kicks off its second annual Smart Girl Summit.
The conference takes Sept. 30-Oct. 1 in Crystal City, Va., and will include speeches from
Liz Cheney, radio host Tammy Bruce, columnist S.E. Cupp, and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.).
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) will keynote the event.
According to Smart Girl spokesperson Rebecca Wales,
We are excited to be holding our second annual Smart Girl Summit, two packed days of training, speakers, and networking with some of the biggest names in the conservative movement. We aim to inspire activists for the next 30 days leading up to the midterms, and engage them to keep up the fight into 2012. Women are leaders in the conservative movement, the "mama grizzlies" who are the organizers with their heels on the ground and the need is high for training and networking is in high demand. Smart Girl Politics will continue to fill that need.
Smart Girl Politics was included in my list of "Seven Conservative 'Power Players' to Watch in 2010
Our New Approach to Comments
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss
– we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
