Women's equality this year, more than ever, is in jeopardy. While COVID-19 continues to rage on around the world, a disproportionate amount of the responsibility for frontline work, childcare, and adapting to life during a pandemic falls on the shoulders of women. At the same time, more than 2.5 million American women have had to drop out of the workforce, causing concern that equality in the workplace and any wage gender gap advancements may be at risk.

This is so important to acknowledge, firstly, and to continue to vocalize our support. Even amidst these challenges we all are facing, there is reason to celebrate. We wanted to highlight trailblazing women and those we can't stop cheering for that have soared this past year.
