Raise your glass and toast to TIME‘s 2022 Women of the Year!
On March 8, International Women’s Day, the honorees gathered in Los Angeles for the TIME Women of the Year gala.
The event comes days after the magazine announced this year’s list of leaders: Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, actress Kerry Washington, singer Kacey Musgraves, Pose star Michaela Jae “Mj” Rodriguez, Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix, poet Amanda Gorman, president and CEO of Nasdaq Adena Friedman, founder and CEO of Rise Amanda Nguyen, health advocate Jennie Joseph, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund Sherrilyn Ifill, software engineer Tracy Chou and journalist Zahra Joya.
“When we sat down last fall to conceive a version of this project that could become an ongoing tradition, we chose to spotlight leaders who are working to create a better future for women everywhere,” TIME executive editor Naina Bajekal and senior editor Lucy Feldman wrote in an article. “Our 2022 Women of the Year list features 12 individuals who have reached across communities, generations, and borders to fight for a more inclusive and equitable world.”
