Forbes: CFK among world's 20 most powerful women

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner gestures to supporters at Plaza de Mayo square in Buenos Aires on May 25, 2013 during National Day celebration.

Forbes has released its annual ranking of the most powerful women in the world and this time the US magazine has included President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner in it. The South American leader ranks 19 while Germany’s Angela Merkel leads once more the “guide to the extraordinary icons and leaders, groundbreakers and ceiling crashers who command the world stage.”

“Reigning over a country with the world's highest inflation rates, President Kirchner is still trying to make amends with global creditors after the $95B default on its foreign debt in 2002. And it's working,” Forbes’ article reads online.

Among South American leaders making it to the list, Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff ranks 4 while Chilean President Michelle Bachelet shows at number 25.

Making the list ten times out of the past 11 editions and nine times as No. 1, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been elected to top the ranking, followed by United States Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen. The third place has gone to US philanthropist Melinda Gates.
