Forbes Magazine Selects Bachelet as One of World’s Most Influential Women

SANTIAGO – Forbes magazine has selected Chilean President Michelle Bachelet as one of the world’s most influential women, government officials said on Wednesday.

The former director of UN Women appears in the No. 25 spot among the world’s most powerful women, according to the list published by the U.S. business magazine each year.

According to a communique from the president’s office, Bachelet is one of four Latin American leaders among the top 30 spots on the list.

Also selected were Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Argentine President Cristina Fernandez and the CEO of Petrobras, Maria Das Gracas Silva.

This year’s list is headed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, followed by the head of the U.S. Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen.

The publication said that Bachelet received 62 percent of the votes upon her election to her second term as president, adding that the Chilean leader ended her first 2006-2010 mandate with popular support of 84 percent and later became the executive director of the UN Women organization.

Forbes also emphasized some of the elements of her current government program, including implementing 50 measures in her first 100 days in office as well as initiating a thorough review of the country’s educational system and reforming the constitution.
