2. Hillary Clinton

With years of being in the public eye, as the wife of a politician, a Senator, presidential candidate and now the Secretary of State, itís not surprising that Hillary Clinton is looking forward to being out of the spotlight for a while.

But what an incredible Secretary of State she is! In the past year alone, she has traveled to 42 countries, and has not been afraid to come face-to-face with adversaries: when WikiLeaks released sensitive diplomatic cables in November, she urged Syrian President Bashar Assad to hand over his power and leave his country, and she has warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to pursue a different path than his militant father. She’s also gone viral: the tumblr blog “Texts From Hillary” became a popular meme in April.

Will there be a† 2016 Presidential bid?

Thanks for all of these, and many more: Elizabeth Warren should be in a top 10...

I genuinely like Michelle Obama. I saw her on the Dr. Oz show and she is amazingly, physically fit(she demonstrated her daily workout-made it look easy while Dr. Oz struggled to keep up), and very personable and down to earth. Regardless of politics, I immediately liked her as a person. She is passionate about healthy eating for children.

i agree with most of the comments made here. I agree with #1 and #2 but not the rest. I think there are many other women out there who have made more of an impact than just throwing money at a cause (which seems to be the reason why #3 was selected) and narrowing down on obesity (which to me seems to be an issue that is not as significant as maybe some others that impact human rights much more).

#1 & #2 yes....
not sure the others rated this high in grand scheme...
