Hillary Clinton falls from world's second most powerful woman to 65th

Since her defeat in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton is no longer the world’s second most powerful woman. 

In fact, the former presidential candidate fell down 63 spots all the way to number 65 on the Forbes Magazine list.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has taken over the number 2 spot. Maintaining the number one spot for another year is German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. 

It’s the seventh year in a row for Merkel as the most powerful woman in the world.

While Clinton’s lost leaves the United States as one of the few top democracies that have never had a woman leader, she’s number 20 on the list of powerful women in politics. 

Since the election Clinton has been focused on building up future leaders through her organization, Onward Together. 

New to the world’s most powerful women’s list is Ivanka Trump at number 19.
