About 40% Representation on the Time’s 100 List: Getting Closer!

Standard

Thirty-eight remarkable women in entertainment, law, business, politics, advocacy, and design all made it to the Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” list this year.

Yes, it’s true that 40% is not 50%…but we’ve come a long way!

Here we chose Anchal’s top four favorites, based on our passion for women’s rights, design, and business.

Samira Ibrahim – Plaintiff – Women’s rights

Sued the Egyptian military for subjecting her to a “virginity test.”

Manal al-Sharif – Protestor – Women’s rights

Launched a campaign that encourages women to drive in Saudi Arabia.

Sheryl Sandberg – Business leader – Business

A former at Google, Sheryl is now Chief Operating Office of Facebook.

Check out this amazing TED talk by her if you haven’t already.

Sarah Burton – Fashion – Design

English Fashion designer heading the Alexander McQueen brand and designer of the Middleton’s Royal wedding dress.

PS: We also really loved this Forbes article about how numerous write-ups mentioned working mothers, but that none mentioned working dads.

Cheers,
