50 Most Powerful Women List Honors Youngest Woman Ever

Fortune released its annual list of the 50 most powerful women in business, and while most of the honorees are in their 40s or 50s, the youngest woman to ever claim a spot on the list is only 33 years old. Marissa Mayer, VP of Search and User Experience at Google debuted the list at number 50, and it seems likely that she'll move her way up the list in years to come.

A self-proclaimed geek, Marissa was Google's first female engineer and her job is to oversee thousands of engineers while shaping the design of services like Google.com, Google Maps, Earth, Health, iGoogle. As one of the most powerful women in business, she is in the company of inspiring and accomplished women like Oprah Winfrey, Indra Nooyi (CEO of PepsiCo), Andrea Jung (CEO of Avon), and many more.

That makes me want to also be a VP by age 33. Only six years left, I better hurry up. Or maybe I'll be CEO of my own company by then. ;)

That sounds like a really interesting job and one she's obviously good at doing. Good for her!

Awesome! Way to go girl! I'm the first female engineer at my company too, so that gives me a lot of hope that I can rise through the ranks and kick some butt. The boys' club can be a little intimidating!
