Decades ago, we used to think only the men can be the richest person in the world. And if women is rich, it is mostly10 due to her husband or parents – that used to be theory in old days. But things have changed lately. You will understand what I am talking about as soon as your read our list of current Top 10 Richest Women in the World. Women can be rich also independent of any men. There are many wealthy women who made their fortune on their own; a good example of that is Oprah Winfrey.

But anyways, here are

the List of Top Ten Richest Women in the World

Christy Ruth Walton is the richest women in the world. She is worth $20 billion because she and her family owns Walmart. She is 47 years old and widowed with 2 child. It is amazing, even though the stock market shares of her company is down nearly 15% since last year, but it has been able to come up higher in the recent months. What a lot of people don’t know is that she also owns a part of solar power company named First Solar.

Alice Walton is the second richest women in the world. She is the daughter of the Sam Walton who used to be the richest man in the e world. She is worth $19.5 billion. She is 49 years old now.

Liliane Bettencourt has net worth of $15 billion. She is also the Europe’s richest women. She is a French heiress and businesswoman. Her main income comes from owning shares of L’Oréal these days. She has recently claimed that she lost a lot of money in Bernard Madoff’s ponzi scheme.

Susanne Klatten has $12 billion in her bank account. Her main asset is BMW. She is married currently with 3 children. She has recently tried bought more takes in Altana to make herself own 88% of this giant pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing company.

Birgit Rausing is worth $11 billion because she inherited packaging giant Tetra Laval in 2000 after the death of her husband, Gad Rausing. Her father-in-law founded the company in 1944. Sales now $14 billion.

    These are Good list of top richest women in the world. I bet Oprah tops the list but a lot of women with huge amount of money live in europe and north American countries. Most of them just simply inherited the money while others really worked hard to earn every single penny. Kudos to them.

    That’s an impressive list of women who are ruling this world with their wealth. One thing for sure, these wealthiest women in the world keep their profile quite low while living a rich life. If I were one of them, I would marry a poor but a nice and simple guy. This helps balance out. Its all about ying and yign in my opinion.

    These ladies have tons of money and spend good amount in charities and their non-profit foundations they set up with their husband. Often these type of women are highly competitive and good looking. Rich women are wealthy for two main reasons – either they are attractive or they are driven well by competitive. Remember rich guys like woman who are good looking, frankly speaking. If the woman made herself wealthy, then I applaud to her because more than likely she was driven by her competitive spirit.

    I don´t think , i am sure that most woman became rich because they had relationships with rich man´s, most of them gained fame this way.

    I admire oprah winfrey she made it on her own, i admire yound lady Beyonce Knowles she is making it on her own, the rest through prostitution meke name for themselves.

    I think that most woman to get on top had to sleep with various powerful man´s and gained fame this way, so no respect for those.

    I think that a real man makes his own luck.

    If you want to be a rich women, marry a rich man. There are so many wealthy guys who are looking for good women to marry. Just don’t sign any prenuptial agreements. That’s it. If you two get divorce, you get spousal alimony like millions of dollars each year to live a life to the fullest and happiness.

    I am proud of these women made into the list of top 10 richest women in the world. They beat hundreds of millions of men as far as the amount of money their bank account goes. However, I highly doubt they live as lavish of a life as people think they are living. Most women who are rich is because of their self discipline and hard work.
