100 Women We Love 2016

Here’s to this year's class of the women who inspire us, give us hope, make us laugh and make us want to get up and dance. 


Camille Barbone has worked with many superstars in the music industry. She discovered, managed and launched the music career of Madonna when she was still “like a virgin” in the industry. Barbone believes being open about her sexuality had a positive impact on her own success. “Instead of coping with sexual conquest mentalities, being out allowed me to concentrate on being competitive with men who dominated the industry.” Today, Barbone is the VP of Operations at Choices Women’s Medical Center in New York and is launching a full service transgender health program that has proved to be just as challenging and rewarding as turning talented unknown artists into household names. “Joining Choices, and working for and with activist/feminist Merle Hoffman, has enabled me to continue to empower and educate women and minorities. Everyone deserves to get the facts, to make informed decisions and be the mistresses or masters of their fate,” says Barbone. “In the same way that music continues to act as a messenger of social, political and sexual change and enlightenment, Choices strives to bring much-needed change to health care.” –GO Editors
