Beyonce and Angelina Jolie are Most Powerful Moms

Beyonce and Angelina Jolie have been named among 2012's Most Powerful Moms in a special poll.

Editors at Working Mother magazine have compiled a top 10 list of females who are leading the way in their chosen careers to mark Mother's Day on Sunday (13May12), and superstar Beyonce and Hollywood beauty Jolie have both made the cut, alongside comedienne Melissa McCarthy.


The Crazy in Love hitmaker became a first-time mom in January (12) with the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy, while Jolie schedules her work commitments around her brood of six, and Bridesmaids star McCarthy is a mother to young daughters Vivian and Georgette.


Jennifer Owens, Working Mother Media's Editorial Director, tells UsMagazine.com, "(They) are just a few of the moms making a major impact right now. All of the power women on our list have at least one child 18 or younger, and all are based in the U.S."


Other noted mothers to make the list include The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins and TV presenter Ann Curry.
