Each year, City & State NY recognizes "50 remarkable women who are improving New York." The introduction to the list notes: "A decade ago, when City & State first published an Above & Beyond list of “25 incredible women,” New York had never had a female governor, a female attorney general or a female leader of a majority conference in the state Legislature...Since then, the gender divide has become less out of balance. Gov. Kathy Hochul, state Attorney General Letitia James and state Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins are among the most powerful politicians in the state. Today, more than half of New York City Council members are women. Moreover, there have been similar breakthroughs and gains in the upper ranks of business, law, finance, academia and other areas that once were dominated by men.
City & State’s annual Above & Beyond: Women awards highlight 50 of these remarkable individuals, including outstanding executives, advocates, organizers and others whose accomplishments merit recognition on this exclusive list."
