TIME’s 2022 Women of the Year List

Posted on March 04, 2022

TIME reveals the first-ever TIME Women of the Year list, recognizing 12 extraordinary leaders working toward a more equal world. To celebrate, TIME is hosting an invite-only gala on International Women’s Day, Tuesday, March 8, in Los Angeles. The event will feature appearances from Women of the Year honorees including Tracy Chou, Allyson Felix, Amanda Gorman, Sherrilyn Ifill, Jennie Joseph, Amanda Nguyen, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez and Kerry Washington, and as well as a special musical performance by Kacey Musgraves.

Additional honorees spotlighted on the list include Amal Clooney, Adena Friedman, and Zahra Joya.



TIME Executive Editor Naina Bajekal and Senior Editor Lucy Feldman, who oversaw the project, write: “The pandemic underscored the ways in which broken systems hurt women, from rising domestic violence to disproportionate job losses. When we sat down last fall to conceive a version of this project that could become an ongoing tradition, we chose to spotlight leaders who are working to create a better future for women everywhere. Our 2022 Women of the Year list features 12 individuals who have reached across communities, generations, and borders to fight for a more inclusive and equitable world.”

The inaugural Women of the Year list and gala builds on the success of TIME’s 2020 Women of the Year project, which recognized 100 leaders, innovators, activists, entertainers, athletes and artists who defined a century, ranging from Amelia Earhart and Beyoncé to Eva Perón and Malala Yousafzai. That project was the result of a partnership between TIME and filmmaker Alma Har’el, known for genre-redefining creativity and a relentless dedication to gender equality behind and in front of the camera; and P&G, whose brands reach 5 billion people daily and is committed to creating a world free from gender bias with an equal voice, equal opportunity, and equal representation for all individuals.
