It’s not everyday that women get recognition for the amazing things they do, but Forbes has made sure to acknowledge the world’s most powerful women for 12 years now, and the 2015 list is pretty impressive. Forbes searches for icons who effect busines, media, philanthropy, politics, fashion, and more. Out of 100 phenomonal women Forbes gives a special acknowledgement to 18 of them, whom all built their business from the ground up.

Of the list, Oprah was # 12 and Beyonce landed # 21 as the highest-ranked entertainener on this year’s Power Woman list. Her tour with husband Jay-Z grossed over $100 million for 19 of just the North American show’s.

Sophia Vergara made # 57 and was acknowledged not only for her talents in acting, but also her work in the entertainment industry. She cofounded Latin WorldEntertainment, a talent management and media company, and launched a social networking site, NuevoWorld, which aims to help Latino celebrities connect with their fans.

Take a peek at the full list here and draw inspiration, because these ladies are certainly admirable!
