Take a look at Forbes new list. What does it tell us about the status of women in the world?
The World's 100 Most Powerful Women - Forbes.com:
"The World's 100 Most Powerful Women By Elizabeth MacDonald and Chana R. Schoenberger 08.30.07, 6:00 PM ET -- For the second year in a row Angela Merkel, (photo left) the first woman to become chancellor of Germany, ranks No. 1 on our list of the World's 100 Most Powerful Women. She continued to impress the world with her cool leadership at two back-to-back summits, and stuck to her principles, getting G-8 leaders to agree to significant cuts in carbon emissions, among other things."
Four of the top ten are in politics/government (only one, Condoleezza Rice, in the US). The others run mega-corporations.
