Michelle Obama's post on the site advocates her husband's willingness to "fight" for women, referring to his support of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and women's health preventative services included in the healthcare reform bill.
Editor-in-chief Stacy Morrison notes on the post that Obama is the first to respond to the site's attempts to reach out to both presidential campaigns.
"BlogHer has reached out to both candidates to ask for their perspectives, as well as those of their wives, on what’s at stake in the upcoming election," Morrison wrote in an editorial note. "Thanks to Ms. Obama for being the first and continuing the conversation she started four years ago with the BlogHer community."
Both Obama's campaign and the campaign of 2008 Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) reached out to the popular women's blogging forum during the last cycle, and even credentialed BlogHer to cover some events as media. Michelle Obama submitted several blog posts that are still available on the site.
