Swift joins Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and other 'Power Women' for Forbes 2015 list.

Taylor joins the list of inspirational, unique, and most influential women coming in at number 64. Also notable is the fact that she is the youngest woman on the list at 25 years old. Her avid fan base across multiple musical genres and over the top album sales are some of the reasons she made the list this year.

Number 1 goes to German chancellor, Angela Merkel who tops the list for the 5th year in a row. Hillary Clinton rises from 6th place to second and Melinda Gates, Co-chairwoman of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation comes in at number 3.

Clinton and Gates both were on the inaugural list in 2004 along with Oprah Winfrey and Queen Elizabeth II who have held a spot on the list ever since.
