Most Powerful Women is Fortune‘s biggest multimedia brand starting in 1998 with a list of the world’s top female leaders and now encompassing annual rankings, authoritative stories about how top women lead and navigate their careers, and premiere conferences in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Now Fortune is adding one more element to its fast-growing franchise: a daily newsletter called The Broadsheet. Every weekday morning starting July 8, Fortune reporter Caroline Fairchild will deliver news about the world’s most prominent women, touch on hot-button topics that women leaders are buzzing about, and offer, via exclusive Fortune interviews, a line to the advice and insights of the world’s most successful women.

The name, The Broadsheet, has several meanings. It’s Fortune‘s tongue-and-cheek tribute to its own print roots (a broadsheet is a large sheet of newspaper). It’s also a tip of the hat to Fortune‘s expanding female audience. And it’s a clear signal that the newsletter is for a broad audience—not just women leaders but also guys who understand that women issues are not just women’s issues anymore. Thanks to Sheryl Sandberg and others who have sparked global debates about gender in the workplace, women’s issues are now business issues. Any man who isn’t up on what women bosses think is sure to stumble. (Warren Buffett waxed wisely on women in business in a Fortune essay last year, and the Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) CEO attends the Fortune MPW Summit each year.)

The Broadsheet adds to Fortune’s stable of daily newsletters, which include The Fortune Daily and Term Sheet, which has Senior Editor Dan Primack reporting daily on deals and dealmakers.

Fairchild joined Fortune last year from the The Huffington Post, where she covered business, and, before that, Bloomberg News. She’s a graduate of Duke, where she was a Robertson Scholar.
