TIME reveals the tenth annual TIME 100, which lists the 100 most influential people in the world.
Here's a listing of all the women that made the list:
Joyce Banda, President of Malawi
Dr. Kimberly Blackwell, Director of breast cancer program at Duke Cancer Institute
Vrinda Grover, human rights lawyer
Kamala Harris, attorney general of California
Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Nigerian actress
Erica Kochi, UNICEF development
Daphne Koller, co-founder of Coursera
Roya Mahboob, Afghani entrepreneur
Hilary Mantel, British novelist
Susana Martinez, Governor of New Mexico
Mary Nichols, Head of California Air Resources Board
Liyuan Peng, First Lady of China
Gina Rinehart, Australian mining tycoon
Aung San Suu Kyi, Burmese opposition leader
Malala Yousafzai, education activist
I will say that noticeably absent from the list are Oprah Gayle Winfrey and Sonia Sotomoyer.  Those are just two names I could think off the top of my head.  I'm sure there are some other very influential women who should have made the list but did not.  I do realize that at the end of the day all these lists are just a popularity contest.
