Richest self-made women in America | Entertainment News


Share post:

After several decades of major strides in the American workforce, the number of women in positions of leadership or running their own companies has exploded. There are more self-made women millionaires and billionaires today than ever before, despite an uncontrolled gender wage gap that in 2022 is $0.82 for every $1 a man makes.

Stacker collected data from Hurun Research Institute’s March 2022 report on the world’s self-made women billionaires. It is interesting to note that San Francisco is the city with the most self-made billionaire women (4), while Los Angeles is in second place (3). And perhaps depressing to note that the combined net worth of everyone on this list is $16.3 billion, or around 11% of Jeff Bezos’ net worth. 

Wealth valuations are from Jan. 14, 2022. If an individual’s shares are held jointly—say, with their husband—individual shareholdings were broken out where possible. When this wasn’t possible, a 50/50 split was assumed. “Self-made” in this context means wealth that was not inherited. It doesn’t take into account whether inherited wealth or privilege helped in the creation of independent wealth. Please note: The data source presumed a binary gender classification. The people on this list use the personal pronouns she/her, as of June 2022.
