The BBC dropped its 2019 list of the 100 most inspiring and influential women across the globe on Wednesday, and three of those on it are U.S. congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Swedish anti-climate-change activist Greta Thunberg and American soccer star and equal-pay advocate Megan Rapinoe. Outrage alert.
Few if any of the other names on the list will be recognizable to Americans. Activists, artists, conservationists and environmentalists are among some of the others. The nationalities are scattered around the globe.
Congrats to AOC, Thunberg and Rapinoe, though. Good to see these women and the others recognized for what they do. They can inspire us all.
