All hail, Queen Bey!

TIME announced their annual 1o0 Most Influential People of the Year list, and Beyoncé nabbed the coveted spot on this year's cover. Profiled by Lean In's Sheryl Sandberg, the Facebook COO described the cover star as a boss. "Beyoncé has insisted that girls 'run the world' and declared, 'I’m not bossy, I’m the boss.' She raises her voice both on- and offstage to urge women to be independent and lead," Sandberg writes in TIME.

But Beyoncé wasn't the only inspiring woman to make the list! Kerry Washington, Amy Adams, and Christy Turlington Burns are featured as well, just to name a few. To explore the full list of influencers, head to now.
