It is no longer novel that women are achieving great success in their fields, many of which were once exclusive to men.
While there’s no longer novelty in the news, there are, among all people, discoveries in the storytelling. We present here 10 women whose stories are worth knowing, as we look for the spark and the moment that propelled them to what they have become. We honor these women not so much for breaking new ground, but for expanding the territory.
