ELLE’s 2024 Women of Impact

Our 2024 Women of Impact honorees are freedom fighters and rule breakers. These activists, leaders, and visionaries are pushing their fields to new heights, charting their own paths, shaping trends, and saying, “you thought that was my pinnacle? Think again, I’m only getting started.” Vice President Kamala Harris is making history as the first member of the executive branch to speak boldly about abortion rights. Glossier founder Emily Weiss continues to reinvent her groundbreaking beauty company that she hopes will be a 100-year brand. Tory Burch is empowering women entrepreneurs. Amanda Gorman uses her words to create social change, while Hillary Clinton, Malala, and Shaina Taub are bringing the story of women’s suffrage to Broadway. Senator Tammy Duckworth is helping to ensure people with disabilities are seen and heard, while Congresswoman Veronica Escobar speaks for border communities. Rosario Hevia is working to make the fashion business more sustainable while Cameron Russell works to make it more equitable. CNN’s Abby Phillip is bringing empathy to cable news; Quinta Brunson uses her art to champion public schools; and Jenny Han’s stories make space for herself and others. The 14 women here prove there’s no one way to make a difference—you can start right where you are. Below, they share their goals, their mantras, how they define success, and what they hope their lasting marks on the world will be.
