Explaining the reasoning behind their picks, Time stated, "The people on the list, each in their own way, have lessons to teach. We can debate those lessons; we don't have to endorse them or agree with them."

Among the 40 women to be honored were Melissa McCarthy, Caitlyn Jenner, Nikki Haley, Ariana Grande, Ronda Rousey, Diana Natalicio -- and the youngest addition, Olympic swimmer, Katie Ledecky.

On the men's side, Paul Ryan, Aziz Ansari, Pope Francis, Tim Cook, Ricardo Tisci and Barack Obama were among the key figures to make the cut.

The magazine also called out 2016 presidential candidates, naming Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz -- only leaving GOP hopeful John Kasich off the list.
