100 Women We Love 2007

We present to you this year’s selection of 100 out women who have made an impact on the community. Meet the class of 2007.

Cynthia Nixon
Nixon is so normal it’s deceiving. She lives in Park Slope with her two kids (that go to public school), and happens to have an Emmy and a Tony somewhere around the house. When she kissed her partner, activist Christine Marinoni, just before accepting her best actress award for Rabbit Hole at last year’s Tony’s, some fans raised eyebrows. You get an award, you kiss your partner, right? “I never felt like there was an unconscious part of me around that woke up or that came out of the closet,” she told New York magazine. “There wasn’t a struggle, there wasn’t an attempt to suppress. I met this woman, I fell in love with her.” It’s as simple as that. –MW
