A Record Number of Women Appeared on TIME’S List of Most Influential People

Earlier this week, TIME Magazine released its annual list of 100 most influential people, and while there were a lot of notable inclusions- and exclusions- from the list, there is one particular statistic that is sure to calm nerves across the board.

2019’s edition featured the highest number of women on the list in its 15-year history, as 48 out of the 100 names were women.

Included in the list are notable political figures such as New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Pelosi (Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives), former U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, and former First Lady Michelle Obama.

There were also notable inclusions from the media and entertainment industry, including Captain Marvel star Brie Larson, Taylor Swift, Gayle King, and more.

Speaking on the skewed statistic, TIME Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal stated that it served as a reflection of the changing norms in the society, although that didn’t do anything to diminish any of the accomplishments of the women on the list.
