150 Women Who Shake the World

Happy Wednesday! This is just a quick post to share an excellent installment from The Daily Beast which profiles 150 women who are making big waves in their respective fields. These are 150 Women Who Shake the World.

From Hillary Clinton to Henriette Ebongo to Meryl Streep, this interactive gallery allows you to click on a face to learn more about what one women is doing to break down barriers in athletics, how another plans to solve the world’s diplomatic woes, and how it’s possible to bring clean water to slums in the most destitute parts of the world.

Whatever their calling, these women are a testament to Geoffrey Canada‘s notion that a great teacher is akin to a work of art–each of them can teach us something about what it means to aim for “having it all” or at least, to strive towards building a world where we can give our children what we didn’t have.
