How would our world look if issues that affected women were taken seriously?

In 26 years, Time Magazine has not had a solo woman on its cover with the Person of the Year title.

Since the annual issue was created, only four solo women have ever been on that cover.

Until 1999, Time’s title for the honor was “Man of the Year.”

This week, Martha Nelson became Time’s first female Editor-in-Chief in the magazine’s 90 year history.

Here’s to hoping women leaders get recognized more regularly and publicly. “Women’s issues” should be the headlines of the world’s news. We are half of the population.
