Top 10 Richest Women in the World

Women, in general, earn less than men, this fact is widely known. This gender gap doesn’t just show in average jobs and among average citizens, but also among the wealthiest people in the world. It is therefore no surprise that all of the current Top 10 Richest People in the World are men, just as the Top 10 Richest People in History are and were all men. But the gender gap does not mean rich women do not exist. They absolutely do, as the following ranking will show you. Their nationalities, age levels and, apart from all being inherited, the sources of their wealth differ greatly, but each of the 10 richest women in the world are very wealthy and influential net billionaires.

Check out the current Top 10 Ranking of the richest women in the world below.

Note: Female nation leaders (presidents, prime ministers, queens, etc.) are not counted in this ranking since their wealth is not really measurable in a reliable way. Therefore only private citizens are being listed in this Top 10 ranking of the richest women in the world.
