Meet this year’s most influential women. Our sister publication, Variety, just announced the honorees for its Power of Women: New York event set for April 21 — read the full list of honorees here.
In partnership with Lifetime, Variety has gathered a group of women who have been selected as “Lifetime Impact Honorees.” Each honoree listed below will be featured on the front cover of the New York Women’s Issue on April 18th. The event works with Variety‘s annual New York Women’s Impact Report, profiling the most impactful women working in entertainment and media this year. Each of these women have made a significant difference to chosen causes. Here is the list of honorees:
Jessica Chastain: Planned Parenthood
Chelsea Clinton: Alliance for A Healthier Generation
Gayle King: SEO and The Bowery Mission
Blake Lively: Child Rescue Coalition
Audra McDonald: Covenant House

This year’s event will be hosted by Saturday Night Live‘s Vanessa Bayer, 35, and will be attended about four hundred entertainment and media insiders. The event will take place at Cipriani Midtown, and will be powered by Karma Automotive, who will award Gayle with the Karma Award. Shea Moisture will also be at the event to present the Community Commerce Impact award to a soon to be announced recipient.
“In its fourth year, we are thrilled to be honoring these outstanding women at our annual Power of Women: New York luncheon,” stated Michelle Sobrino Stearns, Group Publisher/Chief Revenue Officer of Variety. “At the heart of New York City is a vibrant community of strong women in entertainment, media and politics whose commitment to philanthropy is inspirational. We are delighted to be celebrating these women along with the women profiled in our annual New York Women’s Impact List with our partners at Lifetime.”
