Women Deliver Top 100 inspiring people delivering for girls & women

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day (March 8th), Women Deliver is announcing the “Women Deliver 100,” our list of the hundred most inspiring people who have delivered for girls and women. This list recognizes women and men, both prominent and lesser known, who have committed themselves to improving the lives of girls and women around the world. Honorees derive from the fields of health, human rights, politics, economics, education, journalism, and philanthropy, and represent a great diversity of geographic and cultural backgrounds.

“2010 was widely viewed as the year women’s issues finally came to the fore in international development,” said Women Deliver President Jill Sheffield. “This list recognizes those who successfully navigated the corridors of power, along with those on the front lines, who have worked to expand rights and choices for girls and women everywhere.”

The 100 honorees were selected from among hundreds of potentials and feature some of the most intrepid, committed, and results-driven people in the world. The list includes President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, one of the GSMA mWomen Champions.
