Our 150 Boston Women of Influence


In honor of YW Boston’s 150th year, we decided to highlight 150 incredible Boston women with¬†our Women of Influence series throughout¬†2016.

These women’s work¬†spans time and industry. The earliest woman on¬†our list, Mercy Otis Warren, was born in 1728, and our youngest, Agnes Ugoji, is a high school student. These women work in politics and the arts; they are nonprofit leaders and corporate executives paving the road for gender inclusivity¬†in their field. The¬†list includes an astronaut, four Olympic athletes, and two¬†prominent feminist theorists. Every woman¬†on this list has worked to create a better Boston for all.
