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.

@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 ? :-)

Love that idea, Noz! :D What a great idea to have a running list of Women Who Are Awesome. Maybe I’ll make a Pinterest category …
