Time Magazine has revealed its annual 100 Most Influential People chart – and Emma Watson, Reese Witherspoon and Kim Kardashian have all made the cut.
Four super women feature this year’s top 10 – Mellody Hobson (3rd) a director on the boards of Starbucks, Estée Lauder, DreamWorks Animation and Groupon, Elizabeth Holmes (5th), the self-made billionaire and healthcare technology entrepreneur, Susan Wojcicki (8th) CEO of YouTube and Chanda Kochhar (9th) CEO of the ICICI Bank.
Next in at number 13 is Kim Kardashian, dubbed ‘the first lady of #fame’ and acknowledged for her loyal following and ability to broadcast (and ultimately sell) absolutely anything. At 26 is Emma Watson, 29 is Reese Witherspoon and 40 Laverne Cox, all amongst the other big female celebrity names to feature high up on the list.
While some people pop up on the list year after year, this is the first time Harry Potter actress Emma has charted. She’s praised as a Pioneer for her United Nations campaign on gender equality and is one of only four Brits named in the whole thing.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Kanye West has been named this year’s top Titan thanks to his ability to cause creative carnage (and make world news) wherever he goes and the rise and rise of his fashion and music empire.
‘Kanye does think,’ the accompanying profile concludes. ‘Constantly. About everything. And he wants everybody else to do the same: to engage, question, push boundaries.’
Well we can’t argue with that now, can we?
