Record 41 Women Featured on Time 100 Most Influential List

The latest installment of Time’s annual 100 Most Influential list features more women than ever before. That’s… Something! Women still don’t make as much as men, but there’s more of them on a meaningless list now than there was in the past, so you know, baby steps. Very small, almost unnoticeable, baby steps.

Some of the women who made this year’s cut: Kerry Washington, Megyn Kelly, Amy AdamsAngela Merkel, Serena Williams, Robin Wright, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Jenji Kohan and Janet Yellen.

“The vast majority of this year’s roster reveals that while power is certain, influence is subtle,” said Time’s managing editor, Nancy Gibbs, of the list. “Power is a tool, influence is a skill. If there is a common theme in many of the tributes, it’s the eagerness to see what some engineer, actor, leader or athlete will do next. 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.”
