  • Forbes has released the list for the "100 Most Powerful Women in the World" and 10 black women made this year's list.

    Of course, First Lady Michelle Obama came in highest of the ten, rolling in at number seven. Following just three spots behind was TV titan Oprah Winfrey. Check out the list below of the other eight black women on the list.

    7. Michelle Obama

    10. Oprah

    17. Ursula Burns, Chaiman and CEO, Xerox

    32. Beyonce

    50. Rosalind Brewer, President and CEO, Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart Stores

    52. Helene Gayle, President, CEO, CARE

    69. Etharian Cousin, Executive Director, World Food Programme, United Nations

    71. Joyce Banda, President, Malawi

    81. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Minister of Finance, Nigeria

    82. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President, Liberia

    The top spot went to Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany while the United States' own Hillary Clinton came in at number two in her job as Secretary of the State. Ten out of 100 is not a huge amount, but it is a remarkable list to be a part of and these women are true role models.
