If you ever wondered who the richest woman is in your state — or in any other U.S. state — the good guys over at Movoto have the answers for you.
So, plenty of women across the country have made huge piles for themselves, the researchers from Movoto — a real estate brokerage — remind us and add:
Some made their billions by ingenuity, others by inheritance, but they all represent a diverse cross-section of American business.
As you would expect, the Walton ladies — Christy and Alice — have made the list. In fact, both of them are among the top 10 richest women not just in the U.S. but in the entire world.
Other women whose names are on the map hold major stakes in huge companies like Apple, Koch Industries, Cox Enterprises, Mars, Disney and Cargill. Now here are the charts.
