Helen Clark outranks Oprah & Michelle Obama to be world's third most influential woman

Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey are probably used to topping lists but in this case, Aunty Helen comes up higher than those gals. 

Helen Clark has jumped up to third place on the Richtopia world's most influential women list, which is based on social media influence.

US presidential candidate and former first lady Hillary Clinton is the most influential, according to the list, while Harry Potter author JK Rowling is No. 2.

Clark has moved to third - above US Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi in fourth and Oprah, who slipped to fifth, while Ms Obama is ranked sixth.

Poloticians make up most of the top 10 - including former Austrarlian prime minster Julia Gillard in ninth and British Prime Minister Theresa May in tenth place.

Now we know Aunty Hels is so high on the list, we're expecting to see some #sponsored tweets about Nikes and such, right Helen??
