Each year, the BBC names 100 influential and inspirational women from around the world. In 2017, they are challenging these women to tackle four of the problems facing women today. This includes; the glass ceiling, female illiteracy, harassment in public spaces, and sexism in sport.
- The glass ceiling – #Teamlead
- Female illiteracy – #Teamread
- Street harassment – #Teamgo
- Sexism in sport – #Teamplay
So far just the first 60 names have been announced. This includes Nasa astronaut Peggy Whitson, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, and England footballer Steph Houghton.
The other 40 will be added during the season this October.
The annual series – which shines a light at issues affecting women all over the world – is this year encouraging women to make a change.
