Rania's descent on this list is accelerating. She was No. 13 in 2004, No. 80 in 2005, No. 81 in 2006, No. 82 in 2007 and now No. 96 in 2008. Will she even be on the list next year? And I noticed Mozah of Qatar isn't listed this year at all after being ranked No. 79 in 2007.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy (L) welcomes Jordan's King Abdallah II on August 27, 2008 at the presidential Elysee Palace in Paris. Jordan will sign soon an agreement with French nuclear group Areva regarding uranium prospecting, declared King Abdallah II.

I think Rania is now the only female muslim royal on the list. One of the UAE royal ladies also featured last year, Sheikha Lubna al Qasimi.

Thanks for the photos, it looks like Sarkozy and the King get along quite well.

I found this article about Jordan's growing popularity amongst students:

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Young Americans studying Arabic like to joke that Jordan is "Middle East Lite" — a safe way into a tumultuous region without Lebanon's violence, Syria's tense relationship with the U.S. or the Gulf's conservative culture.
Drawn by that reputation, an increasing number of Americans interested in Arabic have been flocking to Jordan......

Why do you guys think that is? I haven't examined the list, but is it because she's losing her power, or is it because there are more and more women entering the list, thus pushing her down? I hope the latter is the case.

I suspect it has a lot do with Forbes being a business magazine. Most of the women on the list tend to be businesswomen or elected officials, both of whom control a lot of money and tend to get a lot of press mentions. These are Forbes's two top criteria for inclusion on the list (added to the bottom of this post).

As for press mentions, the magazine doesn't say which media it looked at. Did it only look at English-language media, for example? If so, that might have a lot to do with it as Rania appears to be getting less attention from the English-language media – especially the print media – as the years go by (if memory serves, she got the most press attention in the first few years of her husband's reign, when she had the novelty factor). Also worth considering is the possibility that the other women on the list might now be getting significantly more press coverage than Rania. A focus on the English-language media could also explain the large number of women from English-speaking countries in the top 100. Not a very inclusive list in my opinion, and one reason to take it with a grain of salt.

As for money, Rania probably doesn't control a lot of it via the Jordan River Foundation and can't be credited with Jordan's national budget since she likely has no say in how the country's finances are allocated. She does wield influence in Jordan and – to a lesser extent – internationally, but she doesn't match the sheer power that many of the high-level entrepreneurs and national leaders on the list exert in the course of their duties.

I also wonder how much Forbes has refined its methodology in the five years it has been doing this list. Even if money and press mentions remain the main criteria, how Forbes gathers and analyzes this information could have changed enough (or become more sophisticated) to affect which women are included and how they are ranked. Your suggestion that Forbes might be considering more women for its list is also something that is probably coming into play.


The World's Most Powerful Women - Forbes.com

We measure power as a composite of public profile--calculated using press mentions--and financial heft.

The economic component of the ranking considers job title and past career accomplishments, as well as the amount of money a woman controls. A chief executive gets the revenue of her business, for example, while a Nobel winner receives her prize money and a U.N. agency head receives her organization's budget. We modify the raw dollar figures to allow comparisons among the different financial realms so that the corporate revenue that an executive controls, for instance, is on the same footing as a country's gross domestic product, ascribed to prime ministers.

Business and American. Looking through the list there's a clear slant towards American women...which isn't surprising considering the origin of the magazine and its prime readership.

Hmm, personally I think her coverage is increasing, the BBC have had sevaral news stories and an interview. British newspapers like The Times, The Independent and The Telegraph have all had articles about her and the recent Youtube coverage has been widely reported in newspapers across the globe.
