US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been named by the ForbesWoman magazine as the world’s no 1 Powerful Mom in its annual ranking list.
Besides being actively involved in the American political life, Hillary Clinton has daughter Chelsea whom she cares about a lot.
“ForbesWoman analysed the annual list of the world’s 100 most powerful women — based on money controlled, decision-making power and multiple measures of influence-and teased out the moms who are at the top of their game,” the magazine’s website said.
The second place was awarded to caring Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who has a daughter and a grandson.
The third place went to Indra Nooyi, who is the mother of two and the chairperson and chief of PepsiCo.
Sonia Gandhi, mother of Priyanka and Rahul, was ranked ahead of US First Lady Michelle Obama ranked seventh and Myanmar’s democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi ranked 20.
According to the magazine, “Power moms must develop unique strategies to succeed in both boardrooms and playrooms.”
The list also figured Melinda Gates, co-founder of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
