The most highly recommended comment from the readers:

The obvious omission is JK Rowling. She is defending, with dignity and courage, women’s hard won sex-based rights in law and the settled language women have and must retain to describe themselves and their experience. Women’s rights are under an existential threat from the relentless promotion of a completely incoherent socio-political concept of “gender identity”, also causing huge harms to gay rights (same sex attraction) and vulnerable children. Rowling is without doubt the woman of the year.

Thanks Taswama. It's an interesting list and quite a few of the women were new to me, much to my embarrassment. It prompted me for a subscription when I tried to look at the reader nominations, which was a shame.

I didn't get as far as reading the comments Muriel so thanks for that, its a very good point.

Thanks Taswama. I was able to read the actual article this morning via your original post but the access didn't seem to extend to the comments. I was too late to try again via the share token but thanks for posting.

It was an unranked list of 25 women, teawamutu. Women like Naomi Osaka, Kate Bingham, Paula Rego, Liz Cheney but many more from different countries, e.g. democracy activists Agnes Chow and Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya from Hong Kong and Belarus respectively.

It was a list of women who'd been influential in the last year and each entry was written by another woman.

I didn't check what type of women they were but I think you'd be more inclined to question someone's inclusion on the grounds of their talent or politics rather than anything else.

I really liked this list. I need to look up some of these women. I've been given a task to get comfortable with leadership and I think I may have found inspiration. Thank you!

Surprisingly, yes.

Sally Rooney? Really??

That struck me too. Apparently they couldn't think of a female writer who has had a bigger influence on public life this year.

What is mk1 cunty?

Women in a scientific, literal sense. There is a more clear explanation on the women-centred feminism.board on MN.
