The Wall Street Journal Online has launched a new section devoted to women in business called Journal Women, a place where professional and executive women can read about and share ideas on work, family and the intersection between the two.
The content will examine the issues women deal with on a daily basis and will cover three key areas: career, balance and lifestyle.
The Journal’s Carol Hymowitz, the site’s key writer covering leadership issues, will pen a new online-only column entitled “Above the Glass.” Sue Shellenbarger, who writes the weekly column “Work & Family” for the Journal, will cover family issues.
Journal Women will also feature The Juggle, a blog on the trade-offs of juggling work and family, as well as Front Lines, a daily news brief about women making headlines and other women-related issues in the news. The section will also host community discussion boards, Q&As, videos, polls and more.
“Journal Women is an expansion of the Journal’s growing business of life franchise,” said Alan Murray, executive editor for The Journal Online, in a statement. “Our experience has shown us that there are a lot of business and professional women out there who crave not just fashion and beauty advice, but an intelligent, news-oriented community where they can share experiences and swap ideas.”
