Sara Netanyahu was ranked Israel's most powerful woman in a list published by Forbes Israel.

Netanyahu beat out international CEOs, and politicians on the list of the Israel's 50 most powerful women, which was published earlier this week.

"Netanyahu has been placed ahead of impressive women who lead huge companies," the magazine wrote. "While she does not decide about operations against Iran, lowering the interest rate or real estate reforms, her influence stems mainly from her involvement in the main appointments around the prime minister. Some sources interviewed by 'Forbes' say that her involvement in appointments does not stop at the prime minister's office but includes major positions in the state service. 'She is involved at all levels senior and junior,' one source said."

She was followed by Rakefet Russak- Aminoach, CEO of Bank Leumi, at number 2; Shari Arison, head of The Arison Group, at number 3; Ofra Strauss, head of The Strauss Group, at number 4; and Karnit Flug, deputy governor of the Bank of Israel, at number 5.

Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni was ranked at number 11; and opposition leader and head of the Labor Party Shelly Yacimovich was ranked 13.
