2015 was a tremendous year for both Society+ and the body positive community. And as a member of this community, we wanted to take time to honor those women who do so much more than work in fashion.

The women we honor this year are truly crusading the cause of body love, gender equality, autism, eating disorders and more. We couldn't be more proud to work alongside them as we shatter the status quo.

Every day we will launch an exclusive interview with each of these women and you can click their image to go to their page to learn more about what they crusade for and how you can join in as well.
