Forbes has released their list of the World's Most Powerful Women. Angela Merkel, the spunky leader of Germany has topped the list this year. And who is #66? Greece's own Dora Bakoyannis, former mayor of Athens and current Greek Foreign Minister. She holds the honor of being Athens' first female mayor AND the first female appointed to a senior level cabinet position in Greece. Is she perfect? Of course not. But in the male-dominated world of Greece, she offers women a pittance of hope. And I suppose her well connected family background doesn't hurt either.
