Most Important Accomplishments for Women in 2016
Women have been working hard all year breaking glass ceilings and making changes that are desperately needed in our world. Accomplishments were made in the elections, in sports, in the entertainment industry, in tax code, and on college campuses across the US. The settings of these accomplishments varied, but combined, they made this a great year for women! Here are just 12 of the most important accomplishments for women in 2016.
Feminist Punk: In Appreciation of Badass Female Rockers
The rise of feminist punk was a pivotal moment in the history of rock music and a pivotal movement for women in general. Before the 1970s, the list of greatest rock bands and artists read like this: Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones. Along with other seminal music from that era, it was mostly dominated by male artists.
Most Innovative Women in the World of Food
This list celebrates some of the most innovative women in food: with a huge range of specialities and careers, they are all bringing their creativity to the food industry in very different ways. We’ll be looking at their work and the ideas they have each become known for and explore the different strengths that these women have brought to their careers.

Female Engineers with Powerful Careers Are Here to Stay
Powerful female engineers deliver a promise of change, progress and equity in the workforce. Historically, women haven’t had the means or the ways to advance careers in engineering or technology. Today, women no longer need to take a backseat in the tech world. While still heavily male dominated, a growing number of techy women have emerged full force and are leading a new generation of engineers. They’ve placed themselves in uncomfortable situations, institutions where they felt different, classes where they felt marginalized, and work environments that felt hostile. Yet these women have persevered as beacons of hope for our future generations.
Pioneering Women in Business
When Forbes released its 1998 list of the most powerful females in business, they stated that most members of the list “came from industries with a premium on creativity,” such as advertising, media, and publishing, with “no top women at blue-chip firms.” While creativity is still a requirement for success, of course, it seems that a woman no longer needs to work in a “creative” industry to advance and help empower a business. Every year more and more women are making it to the top in existing companies or building their own successful ones.. From the creator of Spanx, to fashion designers and the CEO of Yahoo, powerful female executives are growing in numbers each year as the work force becomes flooded with more smart, strong and empowered women who want to make it to the top. Journal profiles some of these amazing, pioneering women.
How To Give a Killer Interview
Giving a great interview can be the difference between staying in your mediocre job, and pursuing your dream career. Colin Powell, an American statesman, has said, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” There are also no secrets to being successful in an interview. If you prepare yourself, your answers, and show you are the right worker for the company, then you will be able to rock your interview and get the job.
Most Influential Female Sci-Fi Authors
Science fiction is traditionally a boys club. Men have dominated the genre for years, and it wasn't until the second wave of feminism in the 60s that more and more female sci-fi authors began to be recognized. Women like Madeleine L'Engle, Octavia Butler, and Ursula K. Le Guin were just a few to break out into the sci-fi scene with a vengeance. Their novels and short stories have inspired women of all ages to enter the science fiction and fantasy genres and demand to be respected as equals, and the exceptional authors they are. The women who make up the list of the most influential female sci-fi authors will continue to lead a generation of women to create award-worthy work for years to come.
