ARISE Magazine, Africa’s “first and foremost” fashion glossy, has released its first ever list of 100 dynamic women across the diaspora. Honoring women from business, government, entertainment, philanthropy, and fashion, ARISE’s list of 100 Dynamic women reads like a who’s who of prominent women from around the globe.

The inaugural honorees include Nkosazana DlaminiZuma, the chairwoman of the African Union; philanthropist Melinda Gates; media mogul Oprah Winfrey; singer and campaigner Angélique Kidjo; actress Sophie Okonedo; Diezani Alison-Madueke, Minister of Paterolem Reserves in Nigeria; and many more.

Seeing the names on the list made me wonder who would be perfect for a CLUTCH 100 list. Because we have such a diverse readership, it would be interesting to see who you, Clutchettes, would pick as your top 100 women of the year.

Pick up the latest issue of ARISE or head on over to their website to read the entire list of their 100 Dynamic women of 2012.

Who would you honor in a CLUTCH 100 list?

    Great!!! I’m happy to see South African singer Lira made the list. She’s amazing. If you’re not familiar with her music, go check it out. It’s so uplifting and positive!

    I would love to put my hands on that issue but I don’t know where to buy it. It is a shame!

      I buy ARISE from my local Barnes & Noble (in the “women’s interest” section). Hope you’re able to find it! :)

  • Whatever

    Arise Magazine is the BEST magazine out there for people of color! Everything is on point from the articles to the fashion spreads. Very well done and worth the money.
