Forbes: The most powerful women in the country

In its current issue, Forbes publishes a list of the top 50 most influential Dominican women. The list includes women who have made their mark in business, sports, fashion, communication, and other areas.

The magazine points out that there are good and bad points when it comes to women’s progress in the country. For instance, women make up the majority of university students nationwide, but they still earn 20% less than men in the same posts, and hold only 30% of management posts, according to statistics from the Ministry of Women.
