Prime Minister of Ukraine Julia Timoshenko took the third place in the list of top 100 powerful women of the world, published by the American journal Forbes.

The list of the most powerful women was published only the second time, and the representative of Ukraine was included in it firstly.

State Secretary of US Condoleezza Rice was named as the most powerful woman in the world , the second place was taken by vice Premier and Minister of Health of China Wu Yi, who is called Chinese "iron lady."

The composers of the list especially pointed out the appearance of Ukrainian Premier among first three leaders. They declared that Timoshenko, who played leading role during "orange revolution", has used her status to change the world. Exactly these features are key ones for a powerful woman – not only to have ambitions, but to do concrete actions and to serve as an example and inspiration to others, said the chief editor of Forbes Elizabeth McDonald.
