Talk show host Oprah Winfrey, actress Angelina Jolie and singer/businesswoman Beyonce Knowles have made it onto Forbes magazine' annual 'World's Most Powerful' women list.

Winfrey, no stranger to the list, took the number 13 spot due to the success of her businesses and for The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.

Knowles (No.17) and Jolie (No.37) were recognised for being celebrity role models, as well as their work with the United Nations.

According to Forbes, the list which is topped by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has been at the number 1 spot seven times; features "100 women with the most impact are top politicians and CEOs, activist billionaires and celebrities who matter".

“This year the list features nine heads of state that run nations with a combined GDP of $11.8 trillion. The 24 corporate CEOs control $893bn in annual revenues, and 16 of the women here founded their own companies,” Forbes reported.

The annual list recognises business women, celebrities who are ‘ambassadors for meaningful causes’ and those making their mark in male dominated fields.
