Joanna in BBC's top 100 list of most powerful women

Both Joanna and Dawn are listed in BBC Radio 4's list of powerful women in the UK! (the top 100 can be found here) I'm really proud to be a fan of both of these fabulous women. :grin:

Good for Joanna! I went and looked at the rest of the list, and I was surprised that I knew who so few of them were, but I like that they clearly chose women not just from the entertainment industry, but from politics and such. :yes:

I've not heard of a lot of them either. Was Jennifer Saunders included? I'd have thought - especially with the Spice Girls musical - she would be quite high.

No, Jennifer wasn't. Most of these women are relatively unknown because they do not work in showbiz - a big compliment, as Timeless already pointed out. :yes:

For some reason this topic only became highlighted as a new post today (very odd), but still brilliant news and quite an honour! :yes:

So well deserved, and very well written. I like that they did list a few Joanna's (many) accomplishments instead of just saying she's an actress and was a model. ~cough, cough, deserved a whole page cough, cough!~

Haha no, I agree! Would have been nice to include her work for the Gurkhas, her contribution to charities and perhaps even M&S?

Exactly. What WAS written was well written, but they left out some key points... She is a powerful woman...not because of acting but because of who she is. Grrr! The journalist in me wants to rewrite this!! :angry: Lol.
