On Dec. 13, several Washington female journos will convene to discuss their experiences on the campaign trail and the upcoming presidential election.

The reporters — ABC’s Ann Compton, NPR’s Mara Liasson, and WaPo‘s Karen Tumulty — will join The Atlantic’s Linda Douglass in a candid conversation at the Newseum. The event, which boasts a coffee and dessert reception, is being underwritten by ExxonMobil. A description: “With the 2012 election looming and popular interest in the political press corps surging, the discussion will combine analysis of the election and insight into political strategy as the evolution of women’s presence in political reporting and what it’s like to be a woman on the trail.”
