48 out of 100: Record number of women make TIME magazine’s ‘Most Influential’ list

From Women in the World authored by WITW STAFF:

“TIME magazine’s annual list of the most influential people contains the most women in its 15-year history. This year, just under half of the list’s 100 honorees are women.

Included are political giants such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former First Lady Michelle Obama, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Philippine journalist and Executive Editor of Rappler Maria RessaCaptain Marvel star Brie Larson, and Saudi activist Loujain Al-Hathloul were also among the 48 women named to the TIME 100.

Clinton, Ressa, and Larson were among the many influential women to take the stage at the 10th annual Women in the World Summit last week in New York, as was Loujain Al-Hathloul’s sister, Lina Al-Hathloul.

“We have 48 women on the list this year, up from 45 last year,” TIME Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal told CBS This Morning. ‘When we first started doing this in 2004, I just went back and counted, there were 24.’”
