Lahore, Dec 27: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has been listed as the second most influential woman of 2007 in a list of 11 compiled by MSN. Democratic US presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton leads the list.
"Benazir Bhutto is the first woman to be elected to leadership of a post-colonial Muslim nation — and she"s done it twice," the website says. "She has headed the secular, liberal Pakistan People"s Party from exile for years, but returned to Pakistan in 2007 to run for Prime Minister a third time," it added. "Her policies typically stand in direct opposition to those of President Pervez Musharraf, of whom she is an outspoken critic. She survived an assassination attempt in October and continues to persevere in dangerous political times," the website states.
"Bhutto is a walking example of the bumper-sticker motto, 'Well-behaved women rarely make history"," it states.
The list also includes Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Carrie Underwood, Pat Summitt, Miley Cyrus, Alice Temperley, Sarah Jessica Parker, Vera Wang and Erin Fetherston, Leah Kauffman, Tina Fey, Padma Lakshmi, and JK Rowling, the Daily Times reported.
