The list of the top 100 most powerful women in the UK was compiled by BBC Radio 4’s long running daily programme Woman’s Hour.

The list aims to celebrate the top 100 women who have had the biggest impact on society and have inspired change and acted as role models.

Other women in the list include author J. K. Rowling, Supreme Court judge Baroness Hale, the Queen and artist Tracey Emin.

Professor Dame Wendy Hall said: “I’m delighted to have made the list. I love the way it highlights the increasingly significant role women play in every walk of life in the UK and I’m flattered to have been included in such distinguished company.”
