Mothers of Intention: How Women and Social Media are Revolutionizing Politics in America (2011)
Amazon.com Bestseller

Illuminating women’s clout and influence both online and in the political realm, this book by popular political blogger Joanne Bamberger studies the rise of the motherhood political movement and how online and social media tools have enabled women to become a larger and more powerful presence in the world of politics and activism. Recognizing the fact that women make up the majority of online users and influencers, Bamberger traces this influence across the intersections of politics, motherhood and social media, shedding light on a strong undercurrent that most of the political realm ignores – women’s voices, and more specifically, those of mothers. Mothers of Intention attests to the increasing importance of mothers’ opinions for elections to come.

“Who better than Joanne Bamberger to pen this provocative look at the rising power and clout of what is fast becoming a formal political force in this country… essential reading for anybody who values a glimpse of the future – and the key matriarchal forces that will be shaping it” – Claire Shipman, Senior National Correspondent for Good Morning America
