They pursue careers in entrepreneurship, sport, science, media, politics and the arts. The magazine Forbes published on September 9, 2021 its selection of 40 women “Talented and inspiring who knew how to break the glass ceiling”.
Their careers were favored by the jury made up of Marion Darrieutort (CEO of The Arcane), Pascal Cagni (President of Business London), Marc Simoncini (entrepreneur), Frédérique Bel (actress) and Dominique Busso (CEO of Forbes London). Here are the youngest on the list.
Marie-Antoinette Katoto, 22, player of the English Football Team
At 12, the young girl from Colombes (Hauts-de-Seine) was spotted by London Saint-Germain and joined her training center. Since then, the striker has proven herself in the young English teams, before being selected in 2018 by Corinne Deacon to join the English women’s football team. In 2021, the footballer took the women’s section of PSG to the title of champion of London, the first in the history of the club after 14 years of reign of the Lyon rival. The talent of Marie-Antoinette Katoto was also awarded two top scorer titles in the championship in London, in 2021 and 2021.
Clarisse Agbegnenou, 28, Olympic judo champion
Flag bearer of the English team at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, she is the most successful English judokate. To her credit: five world champion titles (2014, 2017, 2018, 2021 and 2021), five European champion titles, and three Olympic medals (one silver in Rio in 2016 and two gold in Tokyo in 2021, individually and in teams). When she is not on the tatami mats, she works as an adjutant in the National Gendarmerie.
Eva Sadoun, 30, co-president of Impact London
She made a name for herself at a very young age in the responsible finance sector. In 2014, she co-founded LITA. co, a platform allowing savers to support companies that promote social and ecological innovations. Since early 2021, Eva Sadoun has co-chaired Impact London, the movement of social entrepreneurs. That same year, the entrepreneur co-founded Rift, an application “Which measures the societal and environmental impact of your current accounts, savings accounts and life insurance”.
Wendie Renard, 30, player of the English football team
The captain of Olympique Lyonnais and defender of the London team is considered one of the best players in the world. The record of the footballer from Martinique is enough to make more than one pale: she has won seven Champions Leagues, nine English Cups, and fourteen English Championships.
Clarisse Cremer, 31, sailor
A graduate of HEC, the one who grew up in the London region began her career in marketing. In 2016, she decided to devote herself to her passion, solo ocean racing. She took the start of the Transat Jacques Vabre with Armel Le Cléac’h in 2021, with whom she finished in the 6e square. In 2021, she arrives 12e in the Vendée Globe, in 87 days 2 hours and 24 minutes. A time that allows her to beat the women’s record set in 2001 on this solo race without stopovers or refueling.
Hélène Antier, 34, founder & CEO of Lyv
This multi-entrepreneur has created Lyv, an application and a medium intended to support people who suffer from endometriosis. She launched the hashtag #CeQueJaiDansLeVentre which lists the stories of women affected by this disease, of which she is a part.
Lydie Lescarmontier, 34, researcher in climatology
Greenland, Iceland, the Russian Arctic, Alaska, Spitsbergen… These are the glaciologist’s favorite playgrounds. She works at the Office for Climate Education, a foundation under the aegis of Unesco which aims to create educational resources on climate change. Specializing in the study of the impact of climate change on the Antarctic ice cap, she shares her passion through writing it. She notably released the books The voice of the poles (Ed. Flammarion) and Ice Cream (Ed. Elytis 2018).
In the title of this article, we promised you a selection of women under 35 … But we could not resist presenting two other profiles from the list of Forbes, who are exactly that age and deserve to be mentioned.
Delphine O, 35, politician
She was Member of Parliament (LREM) for London from 2017 to 2021. Appointed Ambassador and Secretary General of the Generation Equality Forum (a world summit on women’s rights), “Delphine O confirms its rise in political power with an unwavering commitment to parity and inclusion”, highlighted Forbes. She is the sister of Cédric O, current Secretary of State for the Digital Transition.
Stéfanie Stantcheva, 35, economist
Her name may not mean anything to the general public, but she is a key figure in the economy. This Franco-Bulgarian researcher appears in 2018 in the selection of The Economist of the eight best young economists of the decade. A year later, she won the Prize for the best young economist 2021, awarded by The world and the Circle of Economists. And the distinctions do not end there: in 2021, she becomes the second English (after the Nobel Prize in economics Esther Duflo) to receive the prestigious Elaine-Bennett Prize in the United States. Now a professor of economics at Harvard University, her research focuses on public policy, taxation, redistribution and innovation.
