The 100 Most Influential Women Of All Time

Yet, the pandemic has also enabled women in finance to shine. Freed from traveling, which devoured 50% of her time in years past, Joyce Chang, chair of global research at J.P. Morgan, says she wrote 78 investment reports last year, up from 33 in 2019, and brought in outside experts to help clients make sense of issues like viruses and climate change. She personally conducted 67 virtual conferences, up from 47 conferences the prior year.

the 100 most influential women of all time

This iconic anthology was unique at the time for bringing together and centering the voices of women of color from diverse backgrounds. The book laid a foundation for third-wave feminism, and had a huge impact on activism and on academia, by providing an intersectional framework for bringing race, ethnicity, and class into queer studies. The dialogue and rallying call of this collection became a touchstone for generations of feminist women of color. Partially a response to the racism of white feminists in the second-wave movement who were silencing and erasing women of color, this book is now on its fourth edition.

One. of the most widely read and influential poets of the 20th century, Adrienne Rich was a powerful feminist and lesbian poet and professor. When she split the 1974 National Book Award for Poetry, she brought Alice Walker and Audre Lorde, two other nominated feminist poets, on stage with her to accept it on behalf of all women. The Dream of a Common Language incorporates her first poems to directly deal with her lesbian desire and sexuality, after beginning a relationship with Michelle Cliff, who she would be with until her death. She is a fantastic poet and a revolutionary queer icon who never stopped fighting against misogyny, racism, and homophobia, both within and outside of the feminist movements.

.css-7dgi4uheight:1em;width:1.5em;margin-right:3px;vertical-align:baseline;fill:#BB3B80;The poll has shone a light on some truly extraordinary women from history, many of whose achievements and talents were overlooked in their own lifetimes.

The list, now in its fifteenth year, recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world's most influential individuals. TIME editors have said of the list in the past, "The TIME 100 is a list of the world's most influential men and women, not its most powerful, though those are not mutually exclusive terms. While power is certain, influence is subtle. As much as this exercise chronicles the achievements of the past year, we also focus on figures whose influence is likely to grow, so we can look around the corner to see what is coming."

Mara has been one of the most influential owners of the last decade, a key voice within NFL meeting rooms with plum committee assignments from labor to rules. As steward of one of the hallmark NFL teams, Mara has also overseen two Super Bowl winners. He has followed in the footsteps of his father, Wellington Mara, who ran the team from 1959 until his death in 2005.

In 1928, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, as a passenger. She gained fame from this, but it was by no means her most significant contribution to aviation. She became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic solo in 1932. In 1935, she became the first person to fly solo across the Pacific from Honolulu to Oakland. Two years later Amelia and her navigator Fred Noonan began their around-the-world flight from Miami eastward. After completing 22,000 miles of their journey, they were last seen on takeoff from Lae, New Guinea, on July 2, 1937. She was truly an inspiration to women, her attitude toward success and failure summed up in the following quote, "Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others."

Bobbi Trout earned her pilot's license in 1928. In 1929, she regained the women's endurance record from Elinor Smith, and at the same time gained records for the first all-night flight by a woman, most miles covered by a 60-horsepower engine, and heaviest fuel takeoff to date. With Elinor Smith in November 1929, she established an endurance record of 42 hours and 3.5 minutes, which was also the first refueling endurance record attempted by a women's team. In 1996, she was the first woman to receive the Howard Hughes Memorial Award from the Aero Club of Southern California.

Ann Wood-Kelly was recruited by Jacqueline Cochran to be one of the first 24 American women pilots to serve in the British ATA. She ferried more than 900 planes of 75 different types, mostly the renowned Spitfires, to destinations in England and France. In recognition of this service, she was awarded the King's Medal by King George IV, presented to her in Washington D.C. by the British Ambassador.

Evelyn Bryan Johnson received her private pilot's license in 1945, her commercial rating in 1946, and her flight instructor's certificate in 1947. She was been a flight instructor for 45 years, and has given flight examinations for various licenses and certificates for the FAA to more than 9,000 applicants. In 1991, she passed her 50,000th hour of logged flight time, believed to be the most ever accumulated by a woman pilot.

Ada Brown was hired as a stewardess by United Airlines in 1940. Recognizing the widespread discrimination that stewardesses faced on the job, Brown and a group of her flying partners signed up almost 300 women, forming the world's first stewardess union at United, the Air Line Stewardess Association (ALSA) in 1945. Today, thanks to Ada Brown, flight attendants at United Airlines and 25 other carriers are represented by the union that grew from ALSA: The Association of Flight Attendants.

Boeing 767 pilot Cheryl Stearns was the first woman on the U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights, in 1977. She has 30 world parachuting records, is 21-time national woman's champion, and twice world champion. She has over 15,000 skydives, the most of any woman in the world.

French pilot Jacqueline Auriol was the first woman admitted to the Bretigny Flight Test Center, and after 16 months of training she became a test pilot in 1952. She was the second woman to break the sound barrier. She and Jacqueline Cochran traded speed records publicly and regularly. Each held the same women's world speed record five times.

In 1917, the U.S. Navy was the first military service to enlist women in fields other than as nurses. One of these WWI enlisted women was Joy Bright. In WWII she became an officer in the Navy, and it was she who recommended that women be employed in aviation fields in the Navy. In 1973, the Navy became the first military service to officially accept women as pilots. Until that time, there was no one more important to women in Naval Aviation than Joy Bright Hancock.

When Eleanor Rooseveltbecame First Lady in 1932, she immediately went to bat for women in aviation. She can be credited with enabling both genders, and all races, to contribute their talents to the survival of the United States during World War II. In 1942, she convinced her husband to create the Women's Flying Training Detachment (WFTD), which combined with the WAFS to become the WASP. In commenting on the WASP's contribution to the war effort, she said, "This is not a time when women should be patient. We are in a war and we need to fight it with all our ability and every weapon possible. Women pilots, in this particular case, are a weapon waiting to be used."

These women epitomize the power of belief. Whether driven by religious belief or belief in a cause, they have changed the world. We include the mother of Jesus and the first follower of Muhammad. There are suffragists and civil rights activists and a saint who helped the poor. Most faced resistance, many were arrested, and one was almost killed. Despite such adversity, these women persisted.

With millions of pictures taken every day we can easily get lost in the vast world of images. That's why TIME magazine decided to create a list of 100 most influential pictures ever taken. They teamed up with curators, historians, photo editors, and famous photographers around the world for this task. 041b061a72
