It is no surprise why Jamil has made the list, the very vocal actress and host, has consistently made it her mission to call out injustices whether it is relating to the use of weight loss or misogyny. Jamil is a skilled actress as seen in her hit show, ‘The Good Place’ and her witty one-liners showcase her ability to capture an audience as she has been for years as a host both in the UK and the USA on shows like ‘The Misery Index.’
