Beyoncé & Kim K Named World’s Most Powerful Moms



Beyonce & Kim Kardashian - May 2014 - 01

Blue Ivy Carter and North West totally agree.

Music superstar Beyoncé, American reality TV star Kim Kardashian and Scandal star Kerry Washington are listed among the World’s 50 Most Powerful Moms of 2014 by Working Mother Magazine.

The publication just released its annual power list and it also includes designer Victoria Beckham, actress Sandra Bullock, singers Shakira and Christina Aguilera.

Mothers were selected across 8 categories including entertainment/literature, fashion/tastemakers, finance/business, news/advertising, politics, retail/manufacturing, philanthropy and tech/science.

According to the magazine, the women “inspire us to keep striving for bigger and better.”

And there you were thinking your mom is the powerful woman you know.

    I won’t accept this nomination O!!! let it be clear. The world’s most powerful mother are those who wake up early in the morning, fetch water, look for wood and gather fire to cook breakfast for their children before they go to school. and those kids walk miles before reaching the school. the world most powerful mums are those who have to be walking or sometimes carried by family members to go give birth to the most near village hospital, the world most powerful mums are those who don’t have much but, struggle hard to sell their smoked fish, plantins, yams to pay to their children school fees and strive to make them leaders of tomorrow…..Lawyers, presidents, doctors, engineers, and make them men who are singers but, who don’t sing to millions of youth and using filthy and dirty lyrics.. like the husbands of these so called world most powerful mums. None sense!!! eschewwwww!!!!!!

    Is this list based on popularity or what? For me Victoria Beckham should top the list. She has 4 well nurtured kids and still successful. Kim and Beyonce each have one kid..What makes them powerful please.

    The world most powerful woman is a woman that started from the scratch and produced 6 graduate(4 kids,the rest relatives),she is the one that finances the family(school,cloth,rent,food etc) she’s the “sanity” of the family,the one that everyone looks up to,she just paid for her husband’s hospital bill & still serve dinner on the table………that’s a powerful woman#mymumrocks……God bless your mama

    that’s their own opinion. but the writer is seeking for their attention. bey and kim has no morals to offer to the women,how much children. real mum don’t go naked. they ill always tell u cover up. not sleeping around to get wealth & assets & divorce. those people careless about GOD. Come to africa & see powerful mum with morals. who don’t mess around but stay focus to see their children through. GOD bless my mum

    Well don’t we all know by what standard they are rated world’s most powerful mums?!, so let’s not waste our time disagreeing and comparing struggling mums, and debating issue of morality..abegi! No need to waste our time analyzing

    There is no way I’m going to compare my Mum in this light, at least not with anything involving these two, it will be such a great insult on my Mum

    I wonder what the mum of that Ghanian boy that got admission into 8 Ivy colleges should be called. America has shown all traits of that much talked about harlot,narrow is the road.
