Time magazine has released an impressive list recognizing women who have had a huge impact on the world. This isn’t just any “list”, however. This is an honorary recognition of women who have worked their way into becoming “firsts” in their respective careers. Women who have broken gender, sexual orientation, and cultural barriers of all sorts. These incredible women represent a myriad of achievements in the fields of art, entertainment, business, politics, athletics, and sciences. They are celebrated not as overcomers of adversity, but ambitious influencers that have proven that life is limitless.
With unique, dignified titles and interviews, each story allows one to fully absorb the magnificence and significance of these extraordinary women. The list of 46 women includes Barbara Walters, Ellen DeGeneres, Mae Jemison, Rachel Maddow, Selena Gomez, Madeleine Albright and more. The delineation of accomplishments extends far beyond these remarkable names. These women are world influencers who exemplify the diverse fabric of America and the thread of its groundbreaking promise that binds it together. They are iconic. They are historic.
