Do you know the richest women in the world? because when we think of the richest people in the world, many times, we may think of a man in a suit. Power, in many ways, has been shaped to look like an image of masculinity. But some of the richest people in the world are women. They have their proverbial empire and are their own kings. This is Dreamy Money’s list of five of the arguably most powerful and richest women in the world.
Let’s Get Started
1. Alice Walton is the No 1 richest women in the world.
Net Worth: $45.6 Billion Inheriting the fortune from her father Sam Walton, you may not be familiar with her name (or her father’s) but you are definitely familiar with her inheritance. Her father owned Wal-Mart, one of the most successful companies and stores in the world! Love it or hate it, Wal-Mart has become a shopping staple in the modern world. Walton herself is a two-time divorcee who loves art. The richest women in the world reportedly bought her first art piece when she was ten years of age. The purchase was a replication of Picasso’s “Blue Nude.” Painting with watercolors was how she and her mother bonded while they were on camping trips together. She was the reason why her family got involved in the development of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art located in Bentonville, Arkansas. Since it’s establishment in late 2011, the location has continued to be a central spot for American Art and its artists. That Concludes Our Dreamy Money List… Each of these women shows us that the title of the richest person, and therefore the most powerful person in the world, isn’t just a masculine image. They’ve all left a strong influence in the world in their own respective ways. They’ve added complexity to the title “billionaire.”
