The "eclectic" group of honorees "are just a few of the moms making a major impact right now," Jennifer Owens, Working Mother Media's Editorial Director, tells Us Weekly in a statement. "All of the power women on our list have at least one child 18 or younger, and all are based in the U.S."

Also on the list? Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins, Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro, and Today show co-anchor Ann Curry.
