Forbes Reveals The 10 Most Interesting Women of 2011

Forbes Most Interesting: Nobel Peace Prize Winner Leymah Gbowee

I find lists fascinating… we’re taken by the ‘most dangerous cities in America’, the ‘most expensive colleges’, the ‘most popular children’s books’…. but there is something special about seeing a list of ‘Interesting Women of 2011′.

Naturally, I hoped the women would all be inspring…..  women that my daughter could see as role models.  But of course that list wouldn’t be ‘interesting’ – those wouldn’t necessarily be the women we were the most curious about this year, but rather, that list would have to be more specific.  THAT list would actually have to be the ‘most Inspiring Women of 2011′.

Forbes compiled a list based on the women we talked about the most. The women we searched for the most (thank you, Google).  There are amazing women on this list.  A Nobel Peace Prize Winner (You see her here to the left) There are survivors.  There are definitely women we talked about and more than one who makes me cringe.

I will admit, there was even one woman on the list I knew very little about.  Yet another reason to appreciate a list like this…. I learned something new.

Before you look at their list – who would make yours?
