The BBC 100 Women list includes “candidates who had made headlines or influenced important stories over the past 12 months.”

By Editor

The 10th edition of the BBC 100 Women had in the list a number of African women who have made a mark in their respective endeavours and fields.

The curators observe that, “While there have been huge steps forward for women’s rights – from the number of female leaders to the MeToo movement – for women in many corners of the world it still feels like there is a long way to go.”

The note further that, “We were looking for candidates who had made headlines or influenced important stories over the past 12 months, as well as those who have inspiring stories to tell, or have achieved something significant or influenced their societies in ways that wouldn’t necessarily make the news.”
