Outstanding leaders? Think Ban Kyi Moon needs to rephrase. This type of hyperbole is not only misleading it is downright untruthful! They are celebrities with time on their hands to do a bit of charity 'work' in the form of a press conference or a photo opportunity which in turn gives them more publicity. It is quid pro quo. I think it is easy to lecture other people about ending poverty when one is able to step straight back into a multi millionaire lifestyle when the interview is over. The real work is done at grass roots level, not through these people and it is awful that it is these famous people who get the kudos instead of the un named thousands who just get on and help people.

Talk to me about poverty Queen Rania after your half a million dollar pleasure trip!

This is great news, with HM ..Lubna ALgasemi and Sheikh Moza were in the same list, its delightful to see arab women progressing in their achievement.

I'm a little biased to Lubna, because she is not a first lady and could get a rank in this list by managing her country economy in a very tough time

You don't have to be a first lady to be on the list. For Lubna being on the list I think that tells you a lot about her & what she is doing in such times for her country & the economy.

Rania is on the list almost every year, she tends to make many of the lists, it doesn't come as a surprise to me.
