It features extraordinary leaders from around the world working to build a better future, from entertainers striving to make Hollywood more inclusive to activists fighting for sustainability and human rights….They are disrupters, fixers, doers, iconoclasts, problem solvers—people who in a year of crisis have leaped into the fray,” Time CEO and editor in chief Edward Felsenthal said of this year’s list.

Billie Eilish is a unique soul, with a voice, style and attitude all unapologetically her own,” Megan Thee Stallion said of Billie. “She is a rare spirit who speaks from her heart with no pretenses….One who is strong, but still learning and still growing. A woman who stands up for herself and advocates for women everywhere.”

Serena Williams had the following to say, “Simone strikes the powerful balance between humility and confidence—she’s enthusiastic yet stoic, believing in her strength, trusting her body and embracing her greatness. With a total of 32 Olympic and world championship medals….What she embodies truly reflects the endless potential of Black women. I wish I had her to look up to when I was younger and trying to realize my dreams.”
