"In this first truly urban age, more women are moving to the forefront of city building and are changing the way we come to understand our urban environments and the needs of those who occupy them," said Ferraro. "We're witnessing a leveling of the playing field, which is great for gender equality's sake, but it's also great for the future of our cities to benefit from what women are reputed to bring to the table as leaders, such as a sense of empathy and a great capacity for risk-taking."

The list of 25 women includes Janette Sadik-Khan, Commissioner, Department of Transportation, City of New York; Jennifer Keesmaat, Chief Planner and Executive Director, City of Toronto; and Chan Laiwa, Founder and Chair, Fu Wah International Group.
