Most powerful women in the world

Forbes, an American magazine, published its annual list of the “World’s 100 Most Powerful Women”. The number one spot went to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, followed by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. You can view the list here. Forbes has been publishing this list since 2004, and Merkel has been in the number one spot 7 times now. The German Chancellor is the country’s head of government.

Forbes also publishes an annual list of the “World’s Most Powerful People”. Its most recent list was published in December of last year, and Merkel held the number two spot. (The number one spot in that list was held by the American President Barack Obama.)
