Update: That escalated quickly. This list started with 15 names of women with insight on a particular issue of law and technology policy. In just over 24 hours, we have over 230 names of a wide variety of experts and over 100 more not yet added. They represent the spectrum of seniority, experience, political and policy views.
The overwhelming response has revealed a need for a resource for journalists and conference planners that is more accessible and comprehensive, both in field and people, than a list. FP Interrupted and Women Also Know Stuff are awesome examples of how scholars in foreign policy and political science are tackling the problem of public engagement representation—and resources everyone should now about. And Gender Avenger is taking on the “man panel” without mercy.
Following their footsteps, we hope to have an announcement very soon about what this will become and how you can be involved. We’re pausing updating the list here—including the many names proposed but not yet added—to begin that transition.
For now, we will leave this up as a tiny sampling of the talent pool. Exhibit A: Anyone claiming "no women were available," just was not looking.
