Caitlyn Jenner now ranks as most powerful woman
In a video clip of the photo shoot on the magazine's website, Jenner said: "Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day, he always had a secret, from morning till night.

BBC Woman's Hour just named its 10 most influential women in the world. These are powerful women who happen to have an "exceptionally large impact on [women's] lives."

Joining the ranks at seventh place alongside US Vogue editor Anna Wintour and celebrity/humanitarian ambassador Angelina Jolie is "high profile trans woman" Caitlyn Jenner.

Only a month in since her Vanity Fair cover, Caitlyn is said to have influence that caters to a wider audience. Her story "trumped all others in the celebrity stakes."

Topping the list is the first woman to hold the post of First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon. A surprise entry to the list is Sia at sixth place who got her place with her influence on music "while remaining faceless in an industry so much based, on well, face."
