TIME Magazine project women who helped shaped the world
TIME magazine’s new project has featured influential and powerful women who helped shape the world in the last 100 years. In these 100 years, only 11 women people had been honored as TIME ‘Person Of The Year’. But this year, the magazine took a step to re-do it, with more recognition for the women. In fact, up till 1999, it used to be ‘Man Of The Year.’
In addition to the original covers, TIME created 89 new covers featuring and recognizing all those women who ‘should’ have been there.
Princess Diana, Jacqueline Kennedy, Beyonce, Ruth Bader Ginsburg are among the women who are now on the list. Authors JK Rowling and Toni Morrison have also made their way on the covers. And Ellen DeGeneres is now on it, too.
More than 600 women were nominees. The project was conceived with the help of filmmaker Alma Har’el.
Natalie Portman’s contribution and appreciation for TIMES
Actress Natalie Portman contributed to the project by writing about Jacqueline Kennedy, First Lady of the United States and 1962’s honoree. This was fitting as Natalie Portman had also played the role of her in 216 historical drama Jackie (2016).
Natalie also took to her Instagram to give TIME Magazine their due credit for this entire project.
