Pop star Billie Eilish is happy about women in a number of top positions - for example in the charts.
"It's absolutely incredible for me to see because it hasn't always been like this," the 20-year-old American told the BBC.
The broadcaster named Eilish one of the 100 most influential women of 2022. Ukrainian First Lady Olena Selenska is also on the list.
Eilish said of herself that she often feels most powerful when she is more masculine.
She struggled with it for a long time, but now she can also draw strength from her feminine side.
With a view to tightened abortion laws in the United States, the singer said: "In some areas we are moving backwards, I would like to throw up."
Eilish stormed the charts when she was 17 with her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Her second album »Happier Than Ever« was released last year.
At the end of March she won the Oscar with her song "No Time to Die" for the Bond film "Keine Zeit zu die".
