The Most Powerful Women are Moms

Last week, Forbes released its annual list of the World's 100 Most Powerful Women. The women who made the list are politicians, CEOs, bankers, cultural icons, billionaires and entrepreneurs.

This group of overachievers includes Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook), presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, and actress/humanitarian Angelina Jolie, who have 14 kids among them. (We noted though that the average number of children among the group is two).
