A new era for women on Time's cover

2019 is on pace to have the highest percentage of Time covers featuring only women in the magazine's nearly 100-year history. This year is already the first year that there are more covers featuring only women than covers featuring only men.

Why it matters: The company has pushed to include more diverse faces on its covers over the past few years. It's finally reached the milestone of having more female-only covers than male-only covers under editor-in-chief and CEO Edward Felsenthal.

16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was profiled in TIME's biannual list of "Next Generation Leaders," which will be publicly available on Friday.

The backdrop: In March, Thunberg led the largest and most widespread demonstration on climate change since the run-up to the Paris climate summit in 2014 and 2015. Organizers estimate that 1.6 million people — most of them students — in more than 100 countries participated.
