"The buzz continued when she announced her pregnancy and in June painted a once-in-a-generation vignette: a female head of government, cradling her newborn and embarking on six weeks of maternity leave."
Among those featured in the 2018 list include ; Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, Instagram co-founder and chief executive Kevin Systrom and Airbnb co founder and chief executive Brian Chesky.
