The World’s Most Powerful Women and Their PeekScores
While we hope to one day live in a world where there’s no novelty whatsoever to the notion of a woman in a position of power, influence, or leadership — and we do find the very notion of such a list a bit silly upon contemplation — we at this time have no problem acknowledging those women who have achieved and/or gained such lofty positions in our contemporary world.
Here it is not power we are measuring, however, instead we’re assessing and comparing the respective sizes of the online presences and impacts of these women, as measured by our PeekScore scale.
