The Huffington Post Adds New Sections for Women, Parents, Black Voices

Today the AOL Huffington Post Media Group launched HuffPost Women. Come Wednesday, two more sections will be launched: HuffPost Black Voices and HuffPost Parents.

Arianna describes the latest launch thusly:

HuffPost Women is a site for women looking to redefine success and what it means to live a healthy, happy, well-rounded life. It will highlight an approach to living that centers on the happiness that comes from feeling good by doing good; that draws attention to the importance of “unplugging and recharging”; that cheers on the continued shattering of glass ceilings; and that embraces a fearless attitude about work, love, money, beauty, relationships, and friendships — with the understanding that fearlessness is not the absence of fear, it’s the mastery of fear.

Sounds pretty self-helpy, more Lifetime Television than Ms. Magazine. But it’s a bit too early to make a solid critique of the section’s editorial identity.

HuffPost Women is edited by Margaret Wheeler Johnson, and actress Marlo Thomas is editor-at-large
