9/11/2012 -- Chicago Tribune -- "Women and power: Forbes' annual list reveals the triumph of change, and some disheartening realities too" Global Director Yasmeen Hassan comments on Forbes' annual women and power list:

"It's women who basically have made it in a man's world," said Yasmeen Hassan, global director of Equality Now, a women's rights group. "In the world in which we live, power is very much defined by what (Forbes is) defining it as: it's money, access and connections. But is that what power should be? Is that what we want the world to look like?"
