Speaking on the list, BBC says:

This year, the women on the list will be part of the 100 Women Challenge, tackling some of the biggest problems facing women around the world.

Coming together in four teams, the women will share their experiences and create innovative ways to tackle:

The glass ceiling – #Teamlead

Female illiteracy – #Teamread

Street harassment – #Teamgo

Sexism in sport – #Teamplay

The list at the moment only has 60 names on it but as time progresses more women who have taken up the challenge in some way will be added to the list.

Here is Tiwa Savage celebrating that she made the list.
