Writer and activist Arundhati Roy
Boston: India-born head of PepsiCo Indra Nooyi and writer and activist Arundhati Roy have been named by Forbes among the world's 30 most inspiring women, a list that also features Mother Teresa, media mogul Oprah Winfrey and United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“Role models mean different things to different people — some of us look for guidance in business, some in our personal lives, some of us strive to make the world a better place each day, some admire trailblazers,” Forbes said. Ms. Roy comes in third on the list, while Ms. Nooyi ranks 10.
The ‘30 Utterly Inspiring Role Models' list has been compiled by ForbesWoman.
The publication reached out to communities on Facebook and Twitter to determine the most motivating women in the world.
Others named in the list include First lady Michelle Obama and Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling.
