BBC 100 Women 2016: Who is on the list? - BBC News

What do a blind Jordanian music teacher, an acid attack victim from Colombia, an octogenarian educator from the US, a palliative nurse from Malawi and a bionic pop artist from Latvia have in common? They all made the list of BBC's 100 Women 2016.

These thought –provoking and courageous women all have stories that we can all learn from, be inspired by and help restore our faith in the good that's in the world.

Launched in 2013 as a series of stories covering a broad range of topics such as education, healthcare, equal pay, domestic violence and sexual abuse, the BBC 100 Women was designed to address the lack of content from and about women. A brain child of BBC editor Fiona Crack and fellow BBC journalist Lilian Lando, the series focuses on the issues and achievements of women in contemporary society. Each year, women who are already famous as well as relatively unknown faces who have made worthwhile contributions to humankind are profiled with viewers participating via Twitter before and after the list is made official.
