Writers featured are Kirsten Gillibrand, John Boehner, Rand Paul, Hillary Clinton, Antonin Scalia, Lamar Alexander, John Lewis, Louise Slaughter and Barack Obama.

40 women are included in 2015’s list, including Susan Wojcicki, Laverne CoxTaylor SwiftEmma Watson, Abby Wambach, Samantha Power, Mellody Hobson, Diane von Furstenberg, Marie Kondo and Marine Le Pen.
