TIME 100, the world’s most influential people

Each year, the TIME 100 Most Influential People identifies and examines the individuals whose ideas, example, talent and discoveries are transforming the very world in which we live.

Meet the most influential people in the world. They are artists and activists, reformers and researchers, heads of state and captains of industry. Their ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution. Welcome to 2014’s TIME 100.

The 2014 Time 100 includes a record number of women: 41. It features people born on six continents, ranging in age from 16 to 78. 

Read unique perspectives of the TITANS, PIONEERS, ARTISTS, LEADERS and ICONS that shape our society, by admirers or critics who are equally influential in their own sphere.

TIME’s Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs writes “In many cases, the profiles are less appraisals than appreciations, written by friends, admirers and mentors, which means this issue invites you to join the conversation”

Sheryl Sandberg pays tribute to Beyonce’s courage and determination to succeed. Bill Gates writes on Nigerian Billionaire Aliko Dangote’s efforts to fight polio in Africa.  Malala Yousafzai describes Hillary Clinton as a symbol of strength for women across the world. Harvey Weinstein hails Robert Redford as “the godfather of indie film”.
