Emma Watson among Most Influential People in Gender Policy 2019

[Version fran├žaise]

You can find a lot of people on the list who are part of the G7 Summit Council alongside Emma but also Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka and Elizabeth Nyamayaro who founded HeForShe, and Marai Larasi, the Executive Director of Imkaan who went to the Golden Globes with Emma in 2018.

Gender 100 - The World’s Most Influential People in Global Policy 2019 - How we made our choices

The Apolitical World’s 100 Most Influential People in Gender Policy has been put together via expert and peer nominations. We received nominations from thousands of people working in local and national governments, international organisations and non-governmental organisations including the United Nations, Women Deliver, Women in Global Health, The World Bank, UNAIDS, Women for Climate Justice, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and more.

Research was then conducted into every nominee and a shortlist was decided based on a number of factors:

● Number of nominations received
● The power and potential to affect change at a local, national or international level, including by virtue of their position or mandate
● Past achievements that have affected change
● Feedback from expert nominators
● Seniority that is significantly beyond expected for someone of a similar age
● National and international perception of the nominee’s influence or potential to influence
● Significant speaking engagements as an indicator of profile in the field
● Social media presence as an indication of their influence on debates around gender equality

Our shortlist was then reviewed by a selection of experts before it was finalised. If you think someone’s missing from our top 100, please nominate them now for next year’s list by emailing
