Three Montana women made Time magazine’s “Time100 Next” list, touting them as “the world’s rising stars.”
Actor Lily Gladstone, environmental activist Rikki Held and Missoula Democratic Rep. Zooey Zephyr are featured in the Sept. 25 edition of the magazine now celebrating its 100th year.
Sam Jacobs, Time’s editor in chief, said the list was assembled through research and reporting from across the magazine’s “global network of editors and correspondents.”
The list was described by Jacobs as an opportunity to show what society’s future and future leaders will look like. Categories included artists, phenoms, leaders, innovators and advocates.
The group reportedly sifted through hundreds of suggestions then met weekly to debate who belongs on the list.
Cate Matthews, an editorial director with the magazine, said: “Through this process we get to know so many extraordinary leaders who are creating change across the world. Our hope is that the list offers a glimpse into their important work.”
