The 100 Most Important Women??
Thu, 23 Oct 1997 01:45:59 -0400 (EDT)

Earlier, I posted the website for Time Magazine's query about the 100 most
important people of the 20th Century. Now I'm back with the "regular"
mailing address, shown below. Getting women nominated is very important.

Next March, Time will publish the first of five special issues celebrating
these 100 folks; CBS will broadcast five one-hour prime-time specials in
partnership with Time, celebrating the same 100 folks. Here are the
categories, for which many men's names were suggested as examples.

1. Warriors and Statesmen: Golda Meir was the only woman named
2. Entertainers and Artists: only Ella Fitzgerald, Edith Piaf, and Marilyn
3. Builders and Titans: not a single woman industrialist, entrepreneur...
4. Scientists and Healers: only Mary Leakey
5. Heroes and Adventurers: only Mother Teresa, Amelia Earhart, and Rosa

Please write to Time Magazine immediately. Their address for receiving your
nominations, with brief arguments for their inclusion among the "100 most
important people of the 20th century":
