December 27, 1996
As we hurtle toward the end of another year, it’s time to take a look back at the year that was. Among the plethora of specials doing just that is one from the magazine mavens at Ladies Home Journal, which showcases women who left their mark on 1996.
While viewers may not agree with those placed on the pedestal, some of the choices are fascinating. Two women from the world of television made the grade – talk-show host and millionairess Oprah Winfrey, and Rosie O’Donnell, dubbed the “Queen of Nice” by Time magazine for her kinder, gentler approach to talk TV. There’s also Sherrie Schneider and Ellen Fein, the authors of The Rule, the controversial book which lays down the law for behavior during dating.
Jamie Lee Curtis hosts the segments on these women as well as reports which feature Hillary Rodham Clinton, Gloria Estefan, and Bette Midler. For those who didn’t make the list, take heart: There are 365 days left to try again.
