Which women are the most powerful of 2022?

leaders, role models, and artists. According to the Financial Times, these 25 women have made an impact on the last year and are influencing both the present and the future through their work. The list, which was just announced by the reputable publication, features athletes, civil rights activists, CEOs, heads of state, philanthropists, writers, musicians, actresses, Nobel prize winners, and even a collective: Iranian women who, following the death of Mahsa Amini, took to the streets in protest and demanded freedom and equal rights, risking their lives in the process.

Let’s begin with the lone Italian representative among the 25 most powerful women in 2022. Francesca Bellettini is the CEO of Saint Laurent, a role she has held since 2013. She attended Bocconi, where she began her successful career in finance before transitioning to the fashion industry and eventually becoming one of the “few female managers in fashion.” This was made possible by Prada CEO Patrizio Bertelli. In the third quarter of this year, she assisted the Kering group brand in recording a turnover of EUR 916 million, or +40%, and is aiming to reach the expected EUR 5 billion in revenues in the medium term. Experts attribute these results to her constant search for balance “in global markets, between categories, or in the relationship between men and women.” The future will determine if her ends up working for Gucci and replacing Marco Bizzarri, according to rumors. The first black woman to serve as a justice on the US Supreme Court in more than 230 years of history is Ketanji Brown Jackson. Oleksandra Matviichuk, a war crimes investigator and president of the Ukrainian NGO Center for Civil Liberties, is also in this group of leaders.

Numerous other politicians were present, including Mia Mottley, the first minister of Barbados and a leading figure in the fight against climate change, Sanna Marin, the first minister of Finland and the youngest elected leader in the world at 34, Francia Elena Márquez Mina, the vice-president of Colombia, and Sherry Rehman, the minister of climate change for Pakistan. Karen Lynch, who will become CEO of CVS Health, the largest US healthcare provider, in February 2021, is another individual worth mentioning. According to the Financial Times, Lynch is “the person reshaping healthcare in America” by making it far more accessible for people.

The heroes part, on the other hand, is made up of a variety of sportswomen, medical professionals, and campaigners who are all bound together by great talent, fortitude, and tenacity. Serena Williams is the most well-known of these. Along with the 23-time Grand Slam champion, we also find MacKenzie Scott, a philanthropist and Bezos’ ex-wife, Sarina Wiegman, the head coach of the English women’s football team, Paula Kahumbu, a Kenyan conservationist, and Jamie Fiore Higgins, a former senior banker at Goldman Sachs and the author of the memoir Bully Market, in which she rails against racism and sexism on Wall Street. Rina Gonoi, a former soldier who was sexually raped by three Japanese Self-Defence Forces officers during training, started a public campaign last summer demanding the truth and a formal apology from the Japanese army. The work of another hero, Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, who now assists women in states that forbid abortions through her telemedicine service Aid Access after the US Supreme Court decision that had protected that right since 1973 was overturned.

Creators will be listed last on the list of the most powerful women in 2022. Here, the most well-known figures stand out, including Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, who gave voice to women in the podcast Archetypes and who, by opposing the British monarchy, “become a symbol of strength for many women.” Pop singer Billie Eilish, who this year won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her song No Time to Die; actress Michelle Yeoh, whose Netflix miniseries The Witcher: Blood Origin will air soon and tell the story of the events that occurred 1. 200 years before The Witcher; writer Annie Ernaux, who will receive the 2022 Nobel Prize in Literature; and German performer and artist Anne Imhof.
