TIME 100 List: The 15 'Most Influential' Women That We Love

TIME Magazine released its list of 100 Most Influential People today -- and quite a few of those 100 are women. Women made up about 40 percent of TIME's list this year, and their range of accomplishments is nothing short of remarkable. The TIME 100 features actresses, activists, politicians and businesswomen. (Side note: It was bit confusing to see Claire Danes on there, even though "Homeland" is a great show and we'll always love Angela Chase.)

We rounded up 15 women that we were most excited to see featured. Did we miss anyone you admire?
