26 July : India-born head of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi and author Arundhati Roy have been named by Forbes among the world’s 30 most inspiring women, a list that also features Mother Teresa, Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton.
“Role models mean different things to different people–some of us look for guidance in business, some in our personal lives, some of us strive to make the world a better place each day, some admire trailblazers,” Forbes said.
Activist Roy comes in third on the list while Nooyi ranks 10.
The ’30 Utterly Inspiring Role Models’ list has been compiled by ForbesWoman.
The publication reached out to communities on Facebook and Twitter to determine the most motivating women in the world.
Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey, who was named the Most Powerful Celebrity by Forbes last month, leads the pack for the most inspirational role model.
