As 2013 has hit the midpoint in July, I’ve noticed that when I’m watching the news or catching up with really cool things to share on social media, there are a lot of women who are making names for themselves. To be fair, I find myself seeking them out now and I am intensely interested in the varied places where powerful women are. For instance, lots of women in the tech world are gaining momentum, as well as those in politics. There are 20 women in the Senate right now, the highest number ever in the history of the United States. Even New York Senator Kirsten Gillbrand said in her piece on the Huffington Post back in May, “Women’s voices are not better than men’s, they’re different and the broader perspective that we bring often leads to better results.” Maybe because I’ve taken a special interest in it lately, but I’ve noticed a lot of women in the start-up world who are entrepreneurs and there’s quite a bit of crossover into creating programs for girls. Here are 10 women who are changing the face of the world and who are doing great things. Some you may know and some may be new to you. Either way, I hope you check out their work and consider supporting the passionate causes they have worked toward.
