Daily Mail: 100 Most Influential Women
To celebrate 50 years of Femail, a celebration of how Britain’s 50 most remarkable women made it big. Some are famous, some you may never have heard of. But their influence shapes ALL our lives. They come from every background, range in age from their 20s to their 70s and belong to every religion and race – yet they share one unique bond.
When the Daily Mail first rolled off the presses 50 years ago its first Femail edition, it was still very much a man’s world. At that time, men still had the view that a woman’s place was principally in the home. The intervening half-century has, thankfully seen a fundamental shift in that notion.
Ambitious, powerful and inspirational females have become the norm — not the exception. And beauty, breeding and wealth are no longer deciding factors in a woman’s ability to succeed: ordinary women from all backgrounds are now free to pursue their lives and careers as they wish.
The result: female voices have begun to reshape our culture from within, ultimately creating a society where gender is no longer any real barrier to success.
We are delighted to announce our Founder, Daisy Kendrick was included in the Daily Mail’s sensational series on Britain’s 100 most influential women – their aspirations, the forces that shaped them, their loves and their hates.
The list of 50 inspirational women, chosen by a panel of fabulous Femail contributors with knowledge of each field, proves where there’s a will there’s a way. From cardiac surgeons to cricket bosses, and technology supremos to television whizz kids and environmentalists, the scope and range of these women is truly remarkable.
They are proof of how far we have come — and how much further we can yet go.
