The Most Powerful Woman in the World

"When Janet Yellen takes over the reins of the Federal Reserve on Monday, she will become one of the most powerful women in the world -- a historic achievement that she has yet to fully embrace," the Washington Post reports.

"Her status has been trumpeted by others -- she is featured in a Microsoft commercial "celebrating the heroic women of 2013" and heralded by glossy magazine Marie Claire as having 'triumphed over the haters' -- but Yellen has been reticent about the role that her sex has played in her four-decade career. She has even instructed staff members that her new title be simply 'chair,' rather than 'chairwoman.'"
