With 87 million women between the ages of 18 and 76 years old online, and another 69 million using social media on a weekly basis, according to BlogHer’s Social Media Matters study, it’s fair to say women run the world web. It’s one of the reasons social media influencer Ananda Leeke founded the Digital Sisterhood Network. The “Jill of Many Trades” (she’s a lawyer-turned-author, as well as an artist, coach, innerpreneur, yoga instructor, among other things) sparked a movement that consists of a national and international following; an entire month dedicated to women in social media, Digital Sisterhood Month, which takes place in December. There’s also a weekly celebration on Twitter and Facebook, entitled #DigitalSisterhood Wednesdays, geared toward shouting out your network and igniting meaningful conversation. As the organization’s designated month comes to a close, Digital Sisterhood announced the 2012 Digital Sisters of the Year. The Digital Sisterhood 100 is comprised of seven categories: Creativista, Empirista, Empowerista, Enchantista, Evangelista, Flowista, and Lifestylista. Take a look at who made the list: --Janel Martinez
