Forbes picks Sonia Gandhi as the sixth most powerful women in the world

New Delhi: The Forbes magazine ranked Sonia Gandhi, the President of the Indian National Congress, stands at No. 6 in the list of most powerful women in the world. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is at the top. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton placed second, followed by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, making the top three spots unchanged from last year.
The list includes women involved in policymaking, entertainment, technology and nonprofit organizations, among other fields. They were ranked according to influence, the amount of money they control or earn, and media presence. The magazine noted Merkel's resolve in preserving the European Union and her influence over the euro zone's ongoing debt crisis.
Clinton was applauded for her handling of crises such as the release of a trove of diplomatic cables by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks. Forbes cited Rousseff for her leadership of the world's eighth-largest economy and approval ratings within her country.
The list featured newcomers such as actress and performer Jennifer Lopez and billionaire philanthropist and widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs, Laurene Powell Jobs.
