DePillis Leaving TNR for WaPo’s Wonkblog

The New Republic’s Lydia DePillis is leaving the magazine for WaPo’s Wonkblog. Poynter’s Andrew Beaujon broke the news on Twitter, and DePillis quickly followed up with a retweet and a confirmation.

So, this is official. Sad to leave @tnr, thrilled to join @ezraklein & Co.! RT @abeaujon: Post memo: @lydiadepillis will join Wonkblog

The real question on everyone’s mind though, was if DePillis would get to keep her 100 Percent Men Tumblr she started this April with the tagline “(c)orners of the world where women have yet to tread.”

The feature includes things like all-male conference lineups, newspaper sections and even full university departments in a commentary-light chronicle of things that just end up being all-male for no reason. The pictures speak pretty loudly for themselves, anyway. But don’t fear, it looks like the tumblr’s not going anywhere. “Condition of hiring, natch,” she said on Twitter.

FishbowlDC reached out to DePillis for comment on her new job.
