Fortune Decides: the World’s 50 Most Powerful Women Are…

Many of the world’s “most powerful women” just met with President Barack Obama in Washington, D.C. at the “Most Powerful Women Summit,” sponsored by Fortune Magazine.

Yes, the list pertains to business. But is power and success only measured by wealth? Where can I find a list for the next Marie Curie and Mother Theresa?

Would they get to meet the president, too?

    Elena L: Between McD's, Johnson & Johnson and Kraft Foods, it would be great if these powerful women chose to get the toxins & crapola out of our lives.
