Our world has changed tremendously since our last Intl. Women’s Impact Report a year ago: The COVID-19 pandemic shut down business around the globe, productions included, and accelerated the shift toward streamed entertainment. The women on this list span continents, based in countries from Kenya to South Korea. During the challenging past year, they have created zombie TV series, Grammy-nominated music and provocative films. On the business side, they have grown their companies and navigated job changes, many of them working from home for the duration. We at Variety salute them, and their accomplishments, in honor of International Women’s Day on March 8.
