Time Magazine names Jacinda Ardern among world's most influential peopleby RNZ
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has made Time Magazine's list of the year's 100 most influential people.
Time describes its list as not a measure of power or past achievements but a gauge of "individuals whose time, in our estimation, is now".
It asked other high-powered people to write brief stories about the top 100.
Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg wrote Jacinda Ardern's profile - saying "in a world that too often tells women to stay small, keep quiet - and that we can't have both motherhood and a career - Jacinda Ardern proves how wrong and outdated those notions of womanhood are".
"She's not just leading a country. She's changing the game. And women and girls around the world will be the better for it," she wrote.
