Making It Rain On Them Hoes: Michelle Obama & Oprah Named In Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women List

- By Bossip Staff

Yeah We Run This World!…Fist Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah, and Bey were amongst the top ranks on Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women List!

Forbes released its annual 100 Most Powerful Women list, and of course, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Beyoncé made the cut. These talented women came in at seven, 11 and 32, respectively.

The list also named some very important women who don’t always get the proper spotlight — like CEO of Xerox Ursula Burns, who came in at 17, CEO of the Humanitarian Organization (CARE) Helene Gayle at 52, Executive Director of the United Nation’s World Food Programme Ertharin Cousin at 69, Malawian President Joyce Banda at 71, Nigerian Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonko-Iweala at 81 and Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at 82.

The list also saw rankings from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Jennifer Lopez and Diane Von Furstenberg. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was named the most powerful woman in the world for the second year in a row. She’s known as the “Iron Lady” and is as a key player in rebuilding Europe’s failing economic structure.

Kudos to all the ladies who make a tremendous difference in our world.

We have to give props to all of the women who made the cut on this one. They’re all doing some pretty dope isht!
