Women have established, maintained and developed a status.  Being wealthy is a great deal as there are few women who are piled with assets, money, wealth or great possessions, abundant resources, and funds. Forbes 2012, list of billionaires has 21 women billionaires in the world with a combined net value of $248.6. Most of the women have inherited the wealth.  The first 5 Billionaires are: Christy Walton, Liliane Bettencourt, Alice Walton, Georgina Rinehart, and Birgit Rausing.

Richest women are around the world, but it’s unbelievable that one among them belong to the same family: the Waltons. One among them lies in the number one position, in the list of Forbes and the other in the 3rd position. The possessions are $29.8 and $28.2 billion respectively. Other richest women includes   Liliane Bettencourt, French socialite, valued $24 billion, Australian mining mogul Gina Rinehart, valued at $29.1 billion and Birgit Rausing has a net worth of $14 billion.
