“For me, seeing women on the cover of a magazine created by men for ‘busy men’ is always powerful,” says the list’s editorial directorKelly Conniff.“In 2019, TIME featured more solo women on its cover than men for the first time. The world has changed, but there have always been women worthy of TIME’s cover.”
