50 Most Powerful Women

Time magazine's coverage of Fortune's 50 Most Powerful Women List, published yesterday, reads like a who's who of the IT, defence and technology industries. Ten top-flight US female execs were from the IT industry, with 5 VPs, one COO and 4 Presidents or CEOs. New tech companies like Facebook, Yahoo and Apple are leading the way, in a corporate shift which may also spell cultural and social change, for the US is already streets ahead of some European countries in terms of gender equality - the term 'the old continent' is not wholly inappropriate when it comes to equal opportunities.

The International Power 50 - the other four continents crammed onto a single page - includes 12 powerful women from the emerging economies of China, India and Mexico; nine from Britain. The eight from France was surprising, but A Good Thing nonetheless.

Time interviewed several of the women who made the list, including Chanel CEO Maureen Chiquet, and Google VP Susan Wojcicki and entertainment heavyweight Oprah Winfrey. The full list is on the Fortune website.
