The BBC has the list of the top ten most powerful women according to Forbes Magazine. What I find interesting is that there are so many Asian women at the top. Emancipation is certainly not a Western thing. (Via Erkan's Field Diary)
A German expat living in the United States had a closer look at the Forbes list of the 100 most powerful women and noticed: "Depressingly, Angela Merkel is the only German woman in that ranking. There are eight women from China, four from France, three from the Netherlands, seven from the UK, and fifty from the US."I think there are plenty of studies that show that more women rise to the top in business, academic and political careers in the United States than in Germany. As usual, Scandinavia is at the top.
