The new mayor of Liverpool has been ranked alongside Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and Hollywood star Kate Winslet as one of the the top 25 most influential women in the UK.
Joanne Anderson, who is the first woman of colour to be directly elected as a mayor in any UK city, has been selected for British Vogue's prestigious 25 list, which celebrates the women shaping 2021 and beyond.
As part of September's issue, the list recognises the women in our society who strive to make difference.
Mayor Anderson has become a strong voice for the eradication of violence against women and girls in Liverpool. The issue says she "symbolises the turning of a leaf for her home town – once one of Britain’s biggest slave ports – and the country."
This year features the likes of fashion designer Vivianne Westwood, the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon.
The Vogue 25 list was established in 2018 to shine a light on the women “defining – and redefining – the way we live now”.
