Only five women graced Forbes' the World's Most Powerful People list last year (German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Indian political leader Sonia Gandhi in the Top 10), a showing poor enough for 2010 to dishearten even the most gung-ho feminist. With this backdrop, Forbes' 100 Most Powerful Women list is a soul-stirring read. Women are making their names in the fields of politics, business, nonprofits, media and money-making, as well as the realm of celebrity, a category almost entirely absent from Forbes' gender-neutral ranking.
