As you can guess by the title, she’ll be overseeing women’s coverage. The New York Observer says there will be plenty of that to come:

Women in the World will have a large editorial presence across Newsweek Daily Beast platforms, according to a Power Point presentation obtained by The Observer. There will be a branded vertical on the Daily Beast, dedicated content in Newsweek and on Beast TV, as well as a Women in the World magazine and a Women in the World books imprint.
