Taylor Swift & Jennifer Garner Are Just a Few Women Who Change the World

Taylor Swift and Jennifer Garner are just two of the amazing ladies being highlighted in the 20 Women Changing the World feature from Marie Claire magazine’s September 2014 issue.

Chelsea Clinton, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Eva Longoria, Gabrielle Giffords and Olivia Wilde are also some of the women being highlighted for their work helping to alleviate the problems facing women and girls across the globe in the areas of health, education, violence, economic empowerment, and political engagement.

Several years ago, Taylor stumbled onto a blog by Maya Thompson, a mom who documented the life and death of her son Ronan. “It absolutely devastated me,” Taylor said. “She had to watch her 3-year-old die and was able to do nothing about it. I woke up in the middle of the night with a verse about his story.”

    I agree with both of you about Angelina Jolie. She taken charitable work to a level that a lot of celebs have not. However, I say let’s not demean other people’s charitable work. Some of the celebrity ladies on this list have done some great things. Of course, not on the level of Angelina but I find it takes someone really special to go outside of their comfort zone to get their boots on the ground in areas that would be most of uncomfortable for not only celebrities but most of us regular everyday working folks as well. I believe Angie would celebrate anyone who could do whatever they’re capable of doing for others. I believe that is the kind of heart she has.

    none of those women go to the extent that Angelina Jolie does. Marie Claire needs to wake up. Give Angelina her props!

    The women mentioned here are great, and do a lot of wonderful things. But I wouldn’t go as far as changing the world.

    How do any of you even know that maybe AJolie was approached to be included in the article and she opted out? I agree with comment #5 -state that you admire AJolie, but don’t discredit others.

    This is just a list of famous women. They tried to branch it out a little with Giffords, but didn’t get very far.

    What a load of garbage. Jolie all the way-she is not afraid to visit countries where girls and women are treated less than human and not afraid to stand up for them. Jennifer and Taylor cannot hold a candle to Jolie.
