Cosmo beefs up feminist beat?

Cosmopolitan.com has hired feminist writer Jill Filipovic to cover politics, especially its policy that affects women's rights. Most recently a freelance contributor to the publication, Filipovic is being hired under the understanding that women don't just want make-up tips -- they wanted to be kept abreast of their political freedoms, too.

"Excited to announce that I'm joining the team at http://Cosmoplitan.com  as a senior political writer," she shared on Twitter.

"HUGE CONGRATS to @Cosmopolitan and feminism! & oh right also to @JillFilipovic," NBC's Nona Willis-Aronowitz responded to the news. 

"Cosmo: More than a sex manual?" freelancer Grace Bello thought aloud.
