Forbes released its annual ‘World’s 100 Most Powerful Women’ list, which ranks the world’s most powerful woman according to money, media presence, and, over all impact.
What’s fantastic about this year’s Forbes list is that the top ten is not littered with Hollywood stars; in fact Lady Gaga claimed the 11th spot being the celebrity that was the closest to making the top ten, while Oprah Winfrey slipped to the 14th spot. Gaga was also the youngest woman on the list over all.
Gaga apparently earned $90 million and has raised more than $202 million to help in the fight against AIDS through her MAC’s VIVA GLAM lipsticks and glosses.
Here is a list of the women who did grab the top ten spots;
1. Angela Merkel, German Chancellor
2. Hillary Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State
3. Dilma Rousseff, President of Brazil
4. Indra Nooyi, Chief Executive, PepsiCo
5. Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook
6. Melinda Gates, Cofounder & Cochair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
7. Sonia Gandhi, President, Indian National Congress Party
8. Michelle Obama, First Lady
9. Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund
10. Irene Rosenfeld, CEO, Kraft Foods
Congratulations to everyone who made the list!
