NEW YORK, NY -- Because Forbes likes to make everything into a competitive list where some people are ranked higher than others, today we're talking about the "most powerful women in the world" (though in truth you've all got the power, ladies).

Anyway, Forbes says the most powerful girl on the globe is German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who's closely followed by Hillary Clinton, then the likes of Melinda Gates, Janet Yellen (chair of the Federal Reserve), Mary Barra (CEO of GM), Christine Lagarde (head of the IMF), Dilma Rousseff (President of Brazil), Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook), Susan Wojcicki (CEO of YouTube) and Michelle Obama (you've probably heard of her before).

Other notables include Oprah at 12 and Beyonce at 21.
