Business magazine Forbes has published its second annual list of the 100 most powerful women in the world. It's not a list of the wealthiest women of course, but in many cases there's a good correlation between power and wealth.
Forbes offers some useful methods of exploring the top 100 list. You can view by country, rank and occupation, as well as by name of course.
The Guardian's guide to the 100 "most powerful figures in one of the UK's most vibrant industries" has been published as the MediaGuardian 100.
Candidates are judged on three criteria - "their cultural, economic and political clout in the UK." The list is published in print and on the web, although you will need to register (at no charge) to access the latter.
