Last week, Forbes published its list of 100 most powerful women in the world including leaders in the field of politics, business, technology and entertainment.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and American philanthropist Melinda Gates came first, second and third, respectively.
Rounding out the top 10: U.S. Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, GM CEO Mary Barra, IMF managing director Christine Lagarde, Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, YouTube CEO SusanWojcicki and U.S. first lady Michelle Obama.
But surprisingly no Canadian women made the cut. Surely there are a few names that could rival the likes of Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren, who ranked No. 99.
Below are five notable names that Forbes might like to consider when it issues its annual rankings of powerful women next year.
