Chinese Characters contributors in #FPwomeratti
When Foreign Policy published its 2012 Twitterati 100 list, we could not help but be struck by the lack of women. Of the 100 tweeters Foreign Policy said “you need to follow,” nearly 90 percent are men. Given the strong presence of smart, powerful, influential women on Twitter, we found this a bit hard to take. So, beginning near midnight U.S. East Coast time on Monday, a group of women from around the world created a list of interesting and influential activists, journalists, analysts, economists, geeks and wonks. Within a few hours, we had more than 200 names and our list had begun to make the rounds on Twitter.
Included in the Twitter-crowd-sourced list are Chinese Characters contributors:
And in the original list:
Howard French (@hofrench) — Journalism professor; former New York Times correspondent in Africa and China.
Evan Osnos (@eosnos) — Staff writer for the New Yorker; former Beijing bureau chief and Middle East correspondent for the Chicago Tribune.
Christina Larson (@larsonchristina) — Contributing editor at Foreign Policy and freelance journalist based in China.
