Who's on Top?

Power lists that were short on women seem to compensate by putting one on the cover. How about putting more on the list?

By featuring John Oliver on its “35 Most Powerful People” cover, today’s Hollywood Reporter has broken a trend. Previously, power lists that were short on women seemed to compensate by putting one on the cover. See: Business Insider’s “Tech Power List: ”100 people, 14 women, lead image: Wall Street Journal reporter Evelyn Rusli; Fortune’s “40 Under 40 in Business:" 16 women, cover image: Birchbox Creator Katia Beauchamp; Business Insider’s “The 27 Most Impressive Students at Harvard Business:”10 women, cover image: Stephanie Frias and Shereen Khanuja; and Vanity Fair’s “The New Establishment List:” 50 people, 7 women, cover image: Lady Gaga. The Hollywood Reporter cover may be one small step forward for transparency but it would be a giant leap to actually start including more women.
