The Most Influential Women Of 2018

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
As the youngest woman to serve in Congress in the history of the U.S., Ocasio-Cortez has made a big name for herself already. In true millennial form, everything about her election process, her win, and her recent move to D.C. has been all over her social media. She even admitted that she couldn't afford to live in D.C. until she started getting her Congress paycheck.

While people at Fox News mocked her, Chef José Andrés, who single-handedly fed the people of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria and has since been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, told her that she had a room, shower, and a place at his dinner table as long as she needs one.
