Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been ranked 29th on this year's Forbes list of the World's 100 Most Powerful Women.
The magazine's another list of the World's 22 Most Powerful Women in Politics has put Hasina in the 6th place for her political achievements.
The top-ranked woman for the ninth year in a row, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, is crusading against anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe; Taylor Swift is battling industry stalwarts and private equity firms over musician song-ownership rights; and 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg—one of 23 newcomers to the list—is fighting inaction on climate change and galvanizing millions of young people around the globe.
To determine the rank within each category, as well as overall rank on the list of 100, Forbes applied four metrics: money (GDP, revenue, assets under management, or net worth), media mentions, impact (employee count, population) and spheres of influence. Collectively, Forbes looked at hard power (currencies and constitutions), dynamic power (audiences, communities and creative influence), and soft power (what are leaders doing with their influence) within the context of each woman's field: business, media, technology, finance, philanthropy, and politics.
