Each year, readers of People magazine look forward to the publications ‘Person of the Year’ issue. You just never know who you’re going to get! Well, for 2019, we all are getting a true treat: People has named four women as its People of the Year.
When explaining the choice, People’s Dan Wakeford wrote, “Our People of the Year issue celebrates the stars who have made an impact on our culture, the individuals who have moved us and entertained us. We wanted to see if we could soak up a little of their wisdom. When we sat down to look at who we thought deserved this honor, I wasn’t surprised that we ended up with an all-female foursome — this year has been dominated by strong women.”
And who are the women in question? Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, Michelle Obama, and Jennifer Lopez. Boom.
Dan also went on to explain, “The accomplishments are varied but have one thing in common: They came when these women got to know themselves better and focused their work on what makes them happy. Success followed those decisions and journeys—and that’s something we can all learn from.”
