Australia represents 3% on Forbes The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women List

Forbes has published the The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women list, and as always, it’s a buffet of over-achieving bitches designed to make females everywhere feel lazy and degenerative very powerful.

Topping the list was Angela Merkel, German Chancellor. Michelle Obama pulled #4, Hillary Clinton #5, philanthropist extraordinnaire Oprah at #13 and 31 year-old Beyonce at #17, the most youthful inclusion after only 28 year-old Lady Gaga. 

Australia was represented by 3% of the list. Predictably so, richest woman in the country, 59 year-old mining tycoon Gina Rinehart was anointed the most powerful Aussie woman, nabbing the #16 spot on account of #powerismoney. PM Julia Gillard and CEO of Westpac Gail Kelly came in at #28 and #62 respectively. 
On the topic of powerful women: are you one, or do you know one? You don’t need to be ca$hed up or famed out but you do need to be a) of the female species b) single and c) doing something excellent or brilliant or vaguely boastable. We’re holding what isn’t a stretch from the localised version of this power list; it’s called Bachelorette, and you can learn more by navigating yourself thissaway.
