Inspiring Women Across America

Originally published by USA Today

They are leaders and entrepreneurs, activists and trailblazers in our communities. They are women who make a difference every day – in every state.

Introducing USA TODAY’s 2024 Women of the Year, 60 women across the country using their voices and determination to push for change and equality, and even joy.

They inspire us, influence us, and make us laugh. They include women such as director and actress Eva Longoria pushing for accurate portrayals of Latinos, and Nebraska’s Asheli Spivey improving the lives of Black moms. They are 17-year-old Eva Lighthiser of Montana challenging her state to consider how environmental change affects future generations. And they are Tennessee’s Melissa Alexander, Becky Bailey Hansen, Mary Joyce, and Sarah Shoop Neumann, four moms bound together after Nashville’s Covenant School shooting, working to make schools safer.

They are our neighbors and role models. They use their voices for others, many overcoming immense challenges, to make change happen. Simply put, they make us want to do better.
