Just in time for Mother's Day, Forbes magazine is out with a story about the World's Richest Moms.

The article reveals that there are only 70 billionaires on the planet who are mothers, and "just eight of these (women) built their own fortunes." The rest inherited money from their fathers or late husbands.

The Forbes column is a fascinating look at a range of women from varied backgrounds, ethnic groups, and birthplaces across the globe.

The list of the World's Richest Moms includes:

  • Meg Whitman, the former CEO of eBay, who is now running for governor of California.

  • Joanne (JK) Rowling, the British author of the Harry Potter book series.

  • Savitri Jindal, a mother of nine children, and the widowed matriarch of OP Jindal Group, a steel and power conglomerate in India.
