Forbes Most Powerful Women In The World List

Forbes’ yearly ranking of the most powerful women came out today. Very cool that they profile successful ladies, but it’s a shame that more women wouldn’t make it on a list of the 100 most powerful people.

Oh well…we’ll get there. Actually, “we” won’t, but some of these women might.

Here’s more, from Forbes:

* Our annual ranking of the most powerful women in the world measures “power” as a composite of public profile–calculated using press mentions–and financial heft. The economic component of the ranking considers job title and past career accomplishments, as well as the amount of money the woman controls.

Top Ten

* Angela Merkel
* Sheila C. Bair
* Indra K. Nooyi
* Angela Braly
* Cynthia Carroll
* Irene B. Rosenfeld
* Condoleezza Rice
* Ho Ching
* Anne Lauvergeon
* Anne Mulcahy
