A woman’s place is never in the kitchen. Women are now not bound by the patriarchy. Instead, they are free and flying tall. They have indeed taken up the seat for becoming the leading entrepreneurs in today’s time.
Be it fashion, cosmetics, or even corporates and politics; it seems that women have made their mark in every sector. The women in America have impacted their speeches and their efforts and eventually have turned out to be influential for the young girls today.
These are the women whom we look up to. March is the month when we celebrate Women’s day; we celebrate womanhood. For anyone who came up with the phrase that women are the weak gender, keep that patriarchy locked in your pockets, please. The world is transforming and women are now the in-charge of it.
Hence, we bring to you some of the most influential women of America in this decade who made significant contributions.

Talking about influential ladies of America and not mentioning Michelle Obama would be a crime.
