“They are heads of state and heads of household. Angry protesters in the city square and sly iconoclasts in remote villages. With a fiery new energy, women are building schools. Starting businesses. Fighting corruption. Harnessing new technologies and breaking down old prejudices. From Detroit to Kabul, these women are making their voices heard.” View Newsweek/The Daily Beast’s list and photo gallery of 150 trailblazing women, which they just released during their third annual Women in the World Summit (March 8 – 10, 2012). You will be inspired. We were.

We were also excited to see that some of the women on this list are women we have previously covered and celebrated here on Women You Should Know.
