even places Cynthia Carroll
of the South-African mining company Angloamerican at number one. She is an American, but she works in Johannesburg as the CEO of one of the biggest mining companies in the world.

It apparently is list season. Last month I mentioned on this blog that the Forbes list
, more focusing on political power, featured two African ladies.
