VIBE Presents: In A League Of Their Own

For Women’s History Month, VIBE collects personal and professional gems from 30 female go-getters. A new extraordinary woman will be featured every day for the month of March.


Long gone are the days where women are spending 9-to-5 as homemakers and trophy wives. In 2015, ladies are slaying every industry, especially TV, film, fashion and music. But even in corporate corners and creative spaces beyond Hollywood, female bosses are scattered throughout the realms of marketing, public relations, charity work, sports and journalism.

To celebrate Women’s History Month, VIBE will be rolling out an interview each day in March, saluting a woman who has made her living by doing exactly what she wants. From eccentric songstress Janelle Monae to Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles to WNBA President Laurel Richies, this VIP list is in a league of its own.
