Top Women of 2011

Barbara Lee for Huffington Post: “Women are being left off the page of every best-of-the-year list I have read so far. For starters, you have to be a princess to make it onto TIME’s list of runners-up for ‘Person of the Year’… Somehow, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is the only woman who ranks for Forbes’ top 10 ‘Most Powerful People in the World’ and is one of very few women to be recognized for leadership ability rather than lifestyle and looks in these year-end superlatives lists.”
