Women Leaders Who Are Changing the World


TIME's project showcases 46 trailblazing women who are changing the world in hopes for every woman and girl to find someone whose presence in the highest reaches of success across various industries inspires her. From showrunners in entertainment and creative fields (Oprah Winfrey, Ava Duvernay) to politics and military (Loretta Lynch, Simone Askew) to science and technology (Mae Jemison, Sheryl Sandberg) and many more. 

These incredible women discuss facing sexism and double standards in their professional fields, how they stay inspired, how they balance families and career, on the people who shaped them, and on breaking the 'glass ceiling'.
