Woman’s Hour broadcast from the Radio Theatre

BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour has broadcast live from the BBC Radio Theatre today to reveal its Power List of top 10 influencers.

Jane Garvey and Jenni Murray were live on stage to announce the list featuring women involved in areas ranging from politics and fashion to journalism and entertainment.

This year’s judging panel was chaired by journalist and broadcaster Emma Barnett, joined by human rights lawyer Helena Kennedy QC, Radio 1 presenter Gemma Cairney, Daily Mail columnist Sarah Vine and Jane Shepherdson, Chief Executive at Whistles.

This is the third Woman’s Hour Power List, following on from the Top 100 list in 2013, which was topped by Her Majesty The Queen, and the Game Changers list in 2014, which was topped by Doreen Lawrence.

Alice Feinstein, editor of Woman’s Hour, says: “The way power operates in today’s global, interconnected society is not straightforward. Brokers of hard power like prime ministers, presidents and CEOs are no longer calling all the shots.

“What I wanted to examine in this year’s list of influencers is how women are operating outside traditional power structures to get things done. I’m grateful to the panel of judges for coming up with a list that I hope will inspire thoughtful debate on the nature of power, influence and the role of women in the world.”
