The World’s Most Powerful Women and Their PeekScores

Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel
Last spring, Forbes released their annual list of the women they believe to be the most powerful in the world.

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.
