“We have 48 women on the list this year, up from 45 last year,” Time Magazine’s editor-in-chief and CEO Edward Felsenthal told “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday.
Felsenthal said that when the magazine first began publishing the list back in 2004, only 24 women were included.
He added that the magazine’s list of 100 most influential people “is in some ways a reflection of our society, but an amazing year for the women on the list.”
“It’s not even noon and I am having a great day,” King told Felsenthal during the segment. “I am so appreciative and so humbled by this I can’t even begin to tell you.”
