From Phoebe Waller Bridge to Lizzo to the women who took down Weinstein
As we look back over the last year, it's easy to look back and remember the bad, be it politics or environmental issues. However, what is clear is the role women have had in shaping our world for the better. Take Gina Miller and Baroness Hale, who stopped undemocratic politics in its tracks, or Greta Thunberg who, aged 16, has spearheaded the international climate change movement. Two courageous sexual assault survivors fought and won justice against convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein, creating a searingly powerful message to women around the world. There's Lizzo who has served as a majestic poster child for body-positivity, while Phoebe Waller-Bridge has not only made us laugh and cry, but also proven how popular female-led, nuanced narratives are. Here, we celebrate and recognise 12 women who have influenced the way we live and think over the past 12 months.
