Avatar Imagesparkle9 says: I'm not suprised! She is amazing :)Avatar Imagesessionka says: Wow...Am I First? Congratulations AGAIN to our favorite author!!!!Avatar Imagesessionka says: Whoops... I guess not :-)Avatar Imagejillians642 says: I am thrilled Rowling is on the list but I am equally deeply disappointed that Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir didn't make the list. She is Prime Minister of Iceland and she's been leading her country extremely well through its financial crisis, standing up to the bullies at the EU (#1 on the list) and the IMF (#9) in some of the most creative ways I've ever heard of. She also happens to be the world's first openly gay head of government, which expands her spheres of influence beyond the reaches of her country, qualifying her for the list. So, again it's disappointing that that influential woman is not on the list but I'm glad Rowling's on it, at least.Avatar ImageGvantsa says: Wooot! Congrats Queen Rowling!Avatar Imagegexpert says: JK ROCKS!Avatar ImageLittleSphinx says: jillian642...that woman should definitely be on the list. 0.0 Avatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: she is , definetelyAvatar ImageNoz says: @jillians642 Wow, I can't believe this woman isn't on the list either. We certainly need more Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir in this world... But again, you might mention the reason why she didn't make it in your comment. She STOOD UP. Are independence and difference too much for Forbes ? Let us do our own list and put her, in good position, in it, right ? :-)Avatar Imagejillians642 says: Love that idea, Noz! :D What a great idea to have a running list of Women Who Are Awesome.

She obviously doesn't need the money. I also want to thank her husband and children for sharing JK with us. It means a lot to us. Definitely congratulations to JK Rowling. You certainly deserve that and more for your kindness and concern for those less fortunate.Avatar Imagemolly43 says: sorry corr'n: With all of her wealth and fame she could've just retired from life and just decided to relax in seclusion; but instead she continues to fulfill us with Pottermore.
