Time magazine has released its 2018 Most Influential People List, and this year’s selection showcases the diversity of our world. “The TIME 100, always a reflection of its moment, looks quite different than in the past,” Time Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal wrote on the magazine’s website. “Influence increasingly knows no single zip code and no minimum age.”
The 2018 list contained a record number of women – 45 to be exact – which includes Tarana Burke, founder of the Me Too movement, actress Nicole Kidman, Emma Gonzalez of the March For Our Lives campaign, African American author Jesmyn Ward, director Greta Gerwig and our very own Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
Notable men to make the list include Australian actor Hugh Jackman, Singaporean novelist Kevin Kwan, Prime Minister of Japan Shinzō Abe, cancer researcher Dr Carl H. June, Attorney General of the United States Jefferson Sessions and director and actor John Krasinski.
