Earlier this year, TIME unveiled Firsts, a multimedia project featuring candid interviews with 46 groundbreaking women. Each one features women who have broken the glass ceiling in their field - tech, Hollywood, politics, sports, science, etc. All of the photos were even shot on an iPhone by Brazilian photographer Luisa Dörr.

Some of these women — Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Aretha Franklin — we know well, and others we'll get to know better through their stories of setbacks and success. Others, you may be meeting for the first time. All of them are extraordinary.

 

I'm so inspired by these stories! TIME Firsts: Women Leaders Who Are Changing the World | Time.com

 

Which of these profiles stood out to you? What firsts have you accomplished in your own life and/or career?
