Ex-Jezebeler Does Womens Blog For Slate

Filed as News on May 14, 2009 3:35 pm

Double XDouble X is a new blog – sorry, web magazine – for women, or at least that’s what they’re aiming at, spun out of Slate blog The XX Factor. Jessica Grose, of Jezebel fame, is the managing editor, and she founded the new venture along with author Meghan O’Rourke and journalist Hanna Rosin.

Double X takes the Slate and XX Factor sensibility and applies it to sexual politics, fashion, parenting, health, science, sex, friendship, work-life balance, and anything else you might talk about with your friends over coffee. We tackle subjects high and low with an approach that’s unabashedly intellectual but not dry or condescending.

So says the about page, and while we’ll see how well this will be executed, chances are the founding trio, along with the rest of the staff, will manage well enough. After all, this isn’t the first blog they’re running.
