Who are the world’s most powerful women? They are the smartest and toughest female business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, philanthropists and CEOs making their mark in the world today.
Here are the most powerful women in the world:
Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany
Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
Hillary Clinton, Politician
Aung San Suu Kyi, Stateswoman
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia
Michelle Bachelet, President of Chile
Christine Lagarde, Lawyer and politician
Janet Yellen, Economist

The most impressive thing about these powerful women is that they gained power in a world set up against them, where they had to fight for their power, influence, and respect.
