Woman of the year[edit]

so... integrating women of the year? No? an example: Dorothy Townsend (23 Dec 1968). "Times woman of the year, Dorothy Wright Nelson, Dean of USC Law School, holds unique position". The Los Angeles Times. Los Angeles, California. p. 49. Retrieved Nov 7, 2016.  Smkolins (talk) 16:46, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Not exactly sure what you're requesting. GoodDay (talk) 20:47, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
That there seems to be an unnoted parallel history of women noted in an article using the modern gender neutral term without attempting to balance the history of awarding to women. That the women be noted. Smkolins (talk) 01:02, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
A designation that there have been four "women of the year" fails - read this [1] bottom left. Smkolins (talk) 01:01, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
I've sent on the conflicting sources to Time Magazine (though their letter to the editor feature is broken on their website right now.) Smkolins (talk) 12:16, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 12 December 2016[edit]

In the list of the winners, the notes column for the 1953 winner, Konrad Adenauer, says this: "In 1953, Adenauer was re-elected as Chancellor of Germany." That should be "Chancellor of West Germany." If the original is correct, then the notes column for the 1970 winner, Willy Brandt, needs "West" removed from this phrase, "As Chancellor of West Germany."

In the notes column for the 2014 winner, Ebola fighters, it says this, ""Ebola fighters" refers to health care workers who helped stop the spread of ebola virus disease during the Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa, including not only doctors and nurses, but also ambulance attendants, burial parties and others." The second occurrence of the word "Ebola" needs to be capitalized. Cjwiki70 (talk) 22:06, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Runner's Up column[edit]

Is there really any purpose in keeping the Runner's Up column? This article is about those chosen as TPY, not those who weren't chosen. GoodDay (talk) 18:17, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
