Ten Quotes from MacArthur Fellows on International Women’s Day

Every year we award MacArthur Fellowships of $625,000 to individuals who display an extraordinary amount of talent and creativity. The no-strings-attached Fellowships encourage talented and creative people to pursue their intellectual and professional endeavors.

On International Women’s Day, we wanted to highlight the voices of a few women who are among the 1000+ MacArthur Fellows. We present these reflections as a way to uplift their personal stories and aspirations, share their collective challenges and triumphs, and shed light on their work to help make the world a better place.

We support creative people and effective institutions committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world. ⚖🌿☮🌎
