Twelve Lebanese made it to the Forbes Top 100 Most powerful Arab businesswomen this year, and five of them were named among the world’s 10 most powerful Arab Women. However, all five of them almost have nothing to do with Lebanon, except having one or two parents of Lebanese origins.

Here’s the list:

#2: Amal Clooney Lawyer, Doughty Street Chambers
#3: Nayla Hayek Chair, Swatch; CEO, Harry Winston
$6: Rula Ghani Afghanistan’s First lady
#7: Reem Acra Fashion Designer
#8: Ayah Bdeir Founder, CEO, littleBits
